Welcome to Jisc RSC Northwest

Offering a wide range of knowledge and expertise, from strategic planning to staff development, Jisc RSCs play a vital role in enabling learning providers to turn their ICT ambitions into reality. Jisc Regional Support Centres (Jisc RSCs) support learning providers across the UK in the effective use of technology.

Working with designated providers across the wider FE and HE sectors, Jisc RSCs are a national support network, uniquely tailoring advice in response to local needs.

The Jisc RSC Northwest is led by Lancaster University through the Information Systems Services department, and is based in Bailrigg House at Lancaster University.

The North West region covers providers based in the counties of Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Greater Merseyside and Cheshire.
