SANS - Survey on application security programs

Video Education Secretary Michael Gove faces many obstacles (and many opponents) to his plan to let parents, charities and educational experts open and manage new Free Schools in their local areas.

There are many hurdles for Free School advocates to overcome too - funding, for example. But even before you get to that stage, how do you know which areas, the government considers appropriate for Free Schools to open?

The Free School Kit, launched by the government agency Partnerships for Schools (PfS), is designed to answer this question.

If you want to launch a Free School, it needs a business case, which depends on whether there's a need in the area. The Free School Kit enables anyone to see on a map the existing school provision, where the schools are, and what their academic records are.

Hosted in the cloud, the Kit is updated regularly with more data to streamline the process of choosing a building and location.

In our film Tim Byles and Karl Hoods from PfS explain to Tim Phillips how and why the developed the Free School Kit, and Ed Fidoe explains how he's using it to create a Free School in East London. Let's roll.
