MHR HR software for schools, colleges and multi academy trust.


Supporting you to improve your
compliance, security and recruitment

HR and payroll support for schools, colleges and multi-academy trusts 

With all of your focus on giving students the best possible education, you simply don’t have the time or money to waste on outdated, time-consuming and manual HR and payroll systems.

As compliance and data protection rules get more complex, and teaching talent harder to find, a flexible and highly configurable HR and payroll platform can help your school, college or academy improve your data security and your recruitment processes – so you can keep your focus on your educational objectives.

We can help you with:

  • Reducing your administrative burden and streamlining processes
  • Improving efficiencies and accuracy for payroll and pension processing across complex pay scales and scheme requirements
  • Ensuring you’re always in line with compliance and data protection legislation

Centralise your employee data

Within schools or academy trusts, employees perform different roles and positions, often in different local authority areas with varied conditions and pension arrangements.

Our cloud-hosted HR and payroll system enables you to store all your employee records and documents, including contracts and checks in one central, secure location. This makes it easier to stay on top of compliance and data protection rules as well as reducing admin for HR and payroll teams by avoiding repetitive data entry. We also support school workforce census coverage at school level, school workforce level and local authority level.


Payroll to suit your workforce

We understand that schools and colleges need to support a multi-role workforce, with complex pay scales and pension schemes for hourly, weekly, monthly and term time pay cycles.

iTrent’s comprehensive payroll software, integrated with a suite of HR solutions in a single system, enables your school, college or trust to manage everything in one central place.

Automating every aspect of your payroll calculations reduces manual processing and human error to ensure that everyone is paid accurately and on time regardless of their roles and working patterns.
