  • I’ve been working alongside the people from Think Ahead since 2013 and they’ve been brilliant in not only providing us with products but also with hands-on practical training that’s helped me to grow as an educator. They have given me support so that I could become confident as my skills as an educator leveled up. It’s so much more than a product or a service, it’s a long-lasting relationship towards educational transformation. Highly recommend.

Think Ahead has supported and directed our school with up to date Technology, superb service and professional development workshops and seminars including student competitions which excited, delighted and encouraged our students to be the creative thinkers and problem-solvers of the future. The shared teacher learning platforms informed and inspired many a teacher to THINK AHEAD!

  • Good Company. Good Products. Good Training and Support. Top stuff.

  • What I love about Think Ahead and their amazing people is that whenever you engage them, the primary discourse is always collaborative and centred around the transformation in education. They are truly invested in supporting schools in their transformation of teaching and learning using technology and as a partner school, we get an incredible amount of valuable consultation which ensures we are current and highly progressive.

  • What I love about ThinkAhead is their passion! You really do get the full package with all that they offer from procurement and implementation to training and ongoing professional development, technical assistance as well as advice. Our KZN consultant, Samantha Perfect, is amazing! She is always just a phone call or email away and will connect you with the right people.

As shapers of young minds, our school is excited to enrich our learners with updated technology that will develop creative thinkers and problem-solvers. Our established relationship with Think Ahead thus far has proven them to be professional and supportive in what they do.

  • I have been working with Think Ahead since the iPad was released in the USA. In over a decade of collaboration I have always been impressed by their professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile. Their social justice initiatives have also been remarkable. They have supplies the aThree2Six refugee education programme with devices, training g and support. They stepped up every time I asked the to host an event at my school and they have been loyal sponsors of the ISASA conferences for many years. Michelle is delightful and her team is a pleasure to work with. This year they have been instrumental I helping us set up Apple School Manager and the JAMF mobile device management system for the Evolve Online School. Enrique burned the midnight oil to make sure that we succeeded.

  • Since the first day, Archers College partnered with Think Ahead to begin the journey of incorporating technology more in our classrooms and everyday teaching, we have never looked back. Technology is no more an additional tool, nor is it there on the side-lines to be used when there is time. Think Ahead helped us create an environment where technology – the use of iPads specifically – is our focus and has re-defined the way we teach and the way our children learn. The team has coached us every step of the way, from managing devices successfully, educating all educators in hands-on workshops, guiding us in our Apple Teacher certification process, hosting parent sessions and teaching Coding and Robotics on a weekly basis at our school. We are forever grateful for the amazing work Think Ahead does every day in the education space and the phenomenal change they have brought to Archers College.

  • ThinkAhead are our chosen technology assistance provider. They have been instrumental in guiding our technology strategy and providing after-sales service instantly. Their team is incredibly professional and dynamic. From devices to staff development to student coding courses, you cannot be in better hands.

  • I have worked with Think Ahead since 2010 when I purchased my first Apple device – a MacBook. Over the years, I have learned from and worked with numerous exceptional creative trainers and am privileged to be able to call many of them friends today. Think Ahead go above and beyond to ensure that the schools they work with receive what they need in terms of support. They are constantly seeking new ways to meet the needs of their clients; always looking ahead and trying to anticipate the needs before they arise. As an Apple Distinguished Educator and Apple Professional Learning Specialist, I can honestly say that everyone on the team goes the extra mile to help their school partners achieve their EdTech visions with Apple technology. From the Apple in Education awards, iPad and Coding Summits to the iSchool initiatives, they are out to make a difference, to leave a legacy and enrich the lives of students and teachers across the country. South African schools are very fortunate to have Think Ahead in their corner; a team of dedicated and professional solution-focused advocates for Apple in education. A heartfelt thank you for your ongoing support and professionalism!

  • Having worked with the ThinkAhead team in three provinces has shown me that the company has a caring culture of wanting to assist schools (and individuals) wherever possible. The team is always friendly and helpful – no matter the request – and I’ve really appreciated the effort and time that Samantha Perfect has shown us – she really goes the extra mile!

  • Think Ahead have been part of our Technology journey since 2015. They are the perfect partner, as they offer a well-rounded package. From tech support, professional development and advice. Our KZN representative, Samantha Perfect, is always a phone call away, ready to help in any way she can. Think Ahead constantly strives to help educators keep up to date with the latest developments with Apple, by hosting courses and Coding and iPad Summits. They encourage the teachers to embrace Technology and show how it can be used to enhance learning. Think Ahead have become part of our family and share our excitement when we reach new heights as a staff or school. It is always a pleasure dealing with Think Ahead.

  • My Edtech learning and teaching partnership with Think Ahead Education Solutions started in 2011. This is a company invested in transforming the education landscape and continually invests in our sector. The link that Think Ahead continually creates between our South African educators and international Apple Distinguished Educators is invaluable. Think Ahead is not just a “sales company” but rather a must-have partner in a school’s Educational Technology integration journey.

  • My journey with iSchoolAfrica started in 2014. They assist our school to access technology and they trained our teachers so that we can support our learners with special needs. What an amazing team to work with. They are supportive and passionate. I can highly recommend iSchoolAfrica.

  • Our relationship with Think Ahead started at the beginning of 2015. We have been working together in various different areas from helping us with which ICT solution to go with through to getting our teacher excited about using ICT in the classrooms. They assisted us with Parent information evenings and workshops. They are continuously keeping us updated with the latest technology through various forms ie workshops, emails and regular meetings.

  • Our relationship with Thinkahead started at the beginning of 2014 when they offered us 5 iPads for our teachers to trial. The trial involved some training sessions and 3 months access to iPads. We never looked back. The company have been alongside us as we researched further and finally decided on a system that suits our school. The service, backup, training and advice they offer has been really professional. We have hosted and attended many of their workshops which have always been presented by experienced and interesting presenters . Think ahead have definitely made our journey into technology much easier. We look forward to working with them in the future.

  • Our school’s relationship with Think Ahead has evolved over the years and we are ever grateful for their knowledge and expertise in the domain of device rollout and professional development within schools. The trainers are experts in their field and are friendly, easy-going and nothing is ever too much trouble.

  • Think Ahead is perfect for any school from K/12 looking to upskill their staff members. The professional development pathways they put together are excellent and the manner in which they conduct themselves is superb. Having partnered and worked with them for several years now they are definitely pathfinders.

  • Think ahead has to be the best company to turn to if you are looking for anything Apple. Not only do they supply you with fantastic products and a great price but they are always willing to go the extra mile to help with any query or product you may need. I would recommend Think Ahead to any school looking to introduce Apple products to their school with a seamless and pleasant experience.

  • This company offers very competitive prices on Apple products and peripherals. They have an excellent “but-back” option, which is critical for schools. Their after sales service is excellent and they are continually in touch with the school to offer their services in the form of training or just coming in to ‘help’ when the teachers are experiencing difficulties. They also offer some free and other paid professional learning opportunities at their premises and at different schools to minimize traveling time for teachers. Annually, they host a competition for excellence in education in which both children and teachers have the opportunity to win outstanding prizes. The children in my school love attending the holiday courses that they run in coding and robotics. An excellent company overall!

  • Think Ahead provide excellent iPad training for all of our staff. Teachers were enthused and excited to use the iPads after the training session and through their training the use of iPads has become and important part of our weekly school timetable. I would thoroughly recommend them.
