About

Excite, Elevate, Engage


We live in exciting times and exciting times lead to exciting innovations and developments! NB Consult has launched a new learning division in order to strengthen and build on our promise of “ Everything in IT as a Service” as well as in response to the growing shift to online teaching and learning and the need for educators to enhance teaching using digital tools to engage learners in a relevant and meaningful way.

Our Learning team is well equipped to provide interactive, hands-on professional development via face-to-face or remotely in both the education and business environments.

Our aim is to debunk the myth that cloud computing and using digital tools to work smarter, not harder is difficult and costly. We empower educators and business to embrace technology and use the powerful digital tools that are available as part of the Microsoft Office 365 package.

The Office 365 Education suite of productivity, communication and collaborative applications are free for all Western Cape Education Department (WCED) public schools via the licence purchased by the WCED. This suite is also available for independent schools at very affordable rates.

NB Consult Group is well-positioned to cater for all the digital needs of schools and business in terms of setting up O365, ongoing technical support, supply and installation of fibre connections and now professional development and support. We will provide guidance and support to enable you to navigate your digital environment with confidence.
