YHGfL is a non-profit-sharing company, owned by a consortium of local authorities and funded through the provision of services to local authorities, schools and teachers and learners in Yorkshire and Humber.

Our services support collaborative working, including, for example, regional connectivity, ISP and web2.0 services, aggregating demand across the region and enabling the sharing of expertise and experience.

Our vision is to build and support communities of schools, using and promoting collaboration with and through ICT as a means of improving effective teaching and learning

ICT4C Update

April 2014 Update

Work to establish the new ICT4C website is continuing so that we can make it live after Easter. At that point, many of the resources and tools which have been provided through local authorities will start to be taken into the ICT4C website and taken down from the YHGfL website. From that point on, access will only be provided as part of our Essential packages which can be ordered now. Remember, you do not have to be taking services from your local authority to take one or both packages, nor does your local authority have to be a member of YHGfL.

On 1st April, we welcomed the EdIT team from Wakefield to the ICT4C Community - we've issued a press release covering this. They have become part of ICT4C Support, increasing the range and type of services that we can now offer. Over the coming months, we'll be releasing more services and products to support schools - keep watching out or sign up to our news emailers.

What's new....

Microsoft Windows XP

Windows XP

Microsoft will end its support for Windows XP from 8th April 2014. This means that schools need to ensure that they have plans in place to upgrade, replace or remove Windows XP Service Pack 3 machines from their networks.

Guidance for schools using Facebook to communicate with parents

Engaging with parents can often be difficult and a number of schools are now exploring the use of social media to communicate with parents. This guide takes you step by step through the process and includes a helpful checklist to work through before getting started.

What was new...



YHGfL has set up a trading arm called ICT4Collaboration which will be providing schools around the region (and beyond!) with some really exciting opportunities. Although it is a commercial company, it is wholly owned by YHGfL which, as you're probably aware, is itself wholly owned by local authorities in the region and is non-profit-sharing.

As the name of the new company suggests, the focus of ICT4C will be to connect and support teachers and learners in a range of communities around the region - be they federations, local authorities or academies. It will be providing a range of resources, tools and services all designed to support, foster and develop collaboration.
