Digital transformation of teaching resources


The Client

TES Global are a leading digital education business, and the organisation behind the Times Educational Supplement (TES) and Times Higher Education (THE). TES Global have provided teachers with news and insights for over 100 years. They have created a repository that allows teachers to access the world’s best collection of lesson plans and classroom resources, developed by teachers for teachers.

They also provide support for job seekers, those looking to hire a new staff member and help with training through their suite of award-winning courses.


The Project

TES Global required development work, hosting and support for a range of websites. Our ongoing relationship has developed over the past three years and we now provide a retained support service to complement our managed Drupal hosting.

As part of the package, TES Global also required hosting services to administer the site TES Topics, a resource rich site with lesson packs and interactive teaching resources. Each site has a staging area, managed by code control and a bespoke deployment process.

The Result

We have developed a number of separate websites for TES Global. These include Growing Ambitions, a community platform and repository of information, where a teacher can log in and access an ever-growing bank of resources to support their work, as well as TES Prime and New Teachers. All of these sites are high value assets for TES and provide valuable educational resources for teachers.

As part of our development work, we identify the most suitable Drupal modules to use to suit each site’s particular functionality. However, where a suitable module cannot be found we will develop bespoke Drupal modules to meet the requirements and enhance the site’s capabilities.

We provide a retained support service to complement our managed hosting including regular monitoring of Drupal core security updates and updates for Drupal contributed modules as standard. We subsequently monitor the performance of the site and ensure optimisation is carried out on the sites when needed.

Ixis are now a single point of contact to TSL Education for any Drupal related issues and have been commissioned to provide additional consultancy on a day to day content administration to the TSL staff, as well as providing training when new website features are launched.
