Who are we
EVA is a rapidly expanding company supplying visual reports to schools. Established in 2009, our company was developed as a result of our company director’s own experience of working as a Director of ICT and class teacher. The support and training we provide for schools is based on a thorough knowledge of the way schools are organised and operate, in particular, the role of the leadership team. Above all, we are proud that our service aims to help schools improve their performance, enabling every pupil to achieve their potential.
What are our unique selling points
The key selling value is that Chris has come from a teaching and leadership position within secondary education, the interactive reports being developed within school by teachers, for teachers. Also, the interactive reports use a unique dashboard style that combine key performance measures together with global filtering across these allowing “what if” scenarios to be created.
