2023-2024 T4L Computer Equipment Rollout (T4L CER) is launching soon!
This year's T4L CER will deliver to all eligible Central/Community Schools, Primary, Secondary, Infants, Schools for Specific Purposes (SSP) and Environmental Education Centres (EEC). Schools will place their orders during Term 3, with all deliveries to be finalised by the end of Term 4.
Following feedback from last year, we are aiming to send rollout allocation emails earlier than last year, to allow schools plenty of time to carefully consider their device needs and determine what to order. We are now working on finalising the catalogue, which will include some new models from our vendors. A link will be included in each school’s allocation email. Bookmark this page to check in for regular updates and subscribe to news.T4L for T4L CER activities and other technology information.
Contact the T4L CER team via: T4L@det.nsw.edu.au for any immediate questions.
T4L Computer Equipment Rollout
T4L CER is a key initiative of the NSW Department of Education. The objective is to ensure NSW school students maintain access to technology that effectively supports teaching and learning.
T4L CER provides schools with access to a selection of new supported equipment and delivers new devices to schools to replace older computer equipment and maintain the DoE standard operating environment.
The project operates over a 4 year cycle and uses an established model to calculate an equitable allocation across all eligible sites. Enrolment data is used to calculate the unit allocations with schools receiving an allocation annually or biannually depending on the school size.
This year has again been challenging for computer vendors, with supply chains still impacted globally, however the T4L team have been busy working with our partners to ensure a great range of devices are on offer.
The device catalogue will include all equipment available for ordering under the T4L Computer Equipment Rollout and will be available soon. It is updated each year and made available once the ordering portal has opened. The catalogue includes resources to assist with planning and decision making.
To assist schools to make the most of the new devices, the tech tools catalogue that outlines many of the digital tools available to schools will be released as schools start to receive their devices.
Ordering Apple devices – please read prior to ordering
If schools wish to order Apple devices, the Apple School Manager Organisation ID will need to be located as a first step.
How do I find the ASM Organisation ID?
- Login to your Apple School Manager account using your school’s login credentials.
- On the left hand side menu, click the Settings button to access your school’s information. The Settings button appears at the very base of the menu.
- ASM Menu > Settings
- Under Settings, click on Enrolment Information in the Organisation Settings section. The Organisation Settings section appears underneath Personal Settings.
- Settings > Organisation Settings > Enrolment Information
- The Enrolment Information will appear on the right hand side. If you have an ASM Org ID number, it will appear after Organisation ID:
What do I do if the Organisation ID: section is blank?
If this section appears blank, it means you do not have an ASM Org ID and you will need to start the process of creating one.
All you need to do is call EDConnect on 1300 32 32 32 and select “option 5 for IT”.
Here is an example of what you can say:
“Hello, I am trying to place my T4L Computer Equipment Rollout order for 2022-23, and I don’t have an ASM Org ID. Can you please help me to start the process of creating one?”
EDConnect will provide you with an incident number. The incident number generated by EDConnect will need to be provided in the ‘Incident Number’ field on the Ordering Form. This will enable you to go ahead and place your order for Apple devices.
JAMF licencing and account enquiries
You may decide to transfer the license of your new rollout devices to JAMF School, so that all of your Apple devices are on the same licensing platform.
If you need assistance with:
- locating your school's licencing code (which is emailed to your school account)
- transferring licences from JAMF Pro to JAMF School
- any other licencing or JAMF account enquiries, email the JAMF team via: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: for transferring device licences, you will need to provide JAMF support the device serial number/s of the devices you wish to transfer, and the rollout purchase order (PO) number. Once ordering closes, you can contact the T4L Rollout team for this information via: T4L@det.nsw.edu.au
You can also phone the JAMF team with your enquiry on: 02 8015 2224
