About SchoolDigiStart

At SchoolDigiStart, our promise to our clients is that our contributions will add value that exceed the costs of our services.
This is one of the reasons we maintain a flexible team of consultants, freelance associates and vetted referral partners, ensuring we can immediately engage specifically skilled and expert resources in response to the urgent needs of our client schools.

Our senior consultant and CEO is Anne Brabazon, academic leader, teacher trainer, school effectiveness planner and holder of two U.K. teaching qualifications and two Masters Degrees.

A trained teacher and ex head teacher, Anne has over 30 years’ experience in schools and colleges in the UK, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, 19 of which were spent in the UAE. With 15 years’ experience in technology implementation in education, Anne works with client schools to enable them to improve by applying systems thinking, process analysis and benchmarking. But her added value for a school is her proven ability to analyse school structures and processes and identify innovative solutions that target academic goals - specifically which target KHDA and other accrediting body’s academic requirements which also ensure better inspection results.
