The National Association of Headteachers (NAHT) is to launch a new website during its 120-year anniversary using software from Ideagen.
NAHT, which is both a trade union and professional association for school leaders in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, will redesign its current website with Ideagen EasySite.
EasySite is Ideagen’s web and enterprise content management software and NAHT will transform its current site to provide its 29,000 members with resource, advice and guidance information.
David Gilmore, NAHT’s Head of Communications, said: “Our new site will be responsive and will offer visitors a new and improved look and feel, easier navigation experience and a much-improved search functionality.”
He added: “We identified a need to modernise our website, making it mobile responsive in the process, and the best way to do that was to completely re-design it from scratch, creating new templates and basically remodelling it.
“Our members and prospective members visit the website to access advice resources such as those concerning terms and conditions of employment, pay grades and pensions. We also have a lot of guidance on subjects involved in the running of a school and managing a classroom.
“With our new site using Ideagen EasySite, it will be easier to navigate and understand, providing visitors with a fresh and modern interface to reflect the type of organisation we are.”
The NAHT has around 29,000 active members, with another 13,000 life members in the form of retired school leaders. The association, which provides protection and support for members but also professional advice and resources, was established in 1897.
David added: “This is a culmination of a long ambition we have had as an organisation and in our 120th anniversary year this is a project that provided us with an opportunity to improve the look and feel of the website, modernising the public perception of the organisation in the process.”
