    essential membership - £600 (or there abouts), not many benefits, basic technet etc
    advanced membership - £1105, MSDNAA, Technet Plus, 50 office licences, 100 windows licences etc

    We went about it by asking parents what they wanted to see from the school, overwhelming response was the kids coming out with good ICT, so we looked at the best route to do that, and it was the Microsoft academy so they come out with the Digital Literacy Cert.

    It is an annual cost - best way to this is to contact Prodigy Learning - that's how we set ours up Prodigy Systems Limited

    IT Academy Blurb - Microsoft IT Academy

    Remember all the resources are included the only additonal fee is *if* people want to take the exams.

    Also it is possible to sign for unlimited exams, so the cost need not be the same everywhere - if I recall correctly I am allowed to charge whatever I feel like

    If your school is part of the SSAT you will get advanced membership for around £420 ex VAT.

    To answer an earlier question, only the registered administrator for the tests cannot be MS trained, everyone else is fine to have anything.

    Thanks for Nephilim for all the info entered in this post.

    something is wrong with that price, as MS simply don't do it for any less than £550 for standard and £1100 for advanced.

    Hmm or not it seems that the £450 is for some advanced package on top of the MS subs.

    No there wasn't on my post as I was confusing a price for some enhnaced support package with the subscription price to become an academy however you stated that

    MS simply don't do it for any less than £550 for standard and £1100 for advanced.
    Which according to Slyv3rs post they do

    It would appear there are a few companies out there that are mis-selling this product, we were told we could get a 15% discount for being a registered charity, but this is just not the case... rubbish
