Software Guides

Here you will find guides for software that are available through the City of Edinburgh Council portal.  Remember, schools can, and should, add to this basic toolkit of software by purchasing additional licences, and/or additional software packages.  Special prices are sometimes available to educational establishments – contact us, or the supplier, for advice before purchasing.  For information on what licences you have as standard in school, please contact us.
