Technology Teacher Training

We work with you to create bespoke teacher training workshops and courses that deliver practical, usable skills and knowledge to your teaching team Our services range in length from a single hour to day or week long courses and can be delivered by video call, in-person or as combination of these, depending on your goals, budget, time frame and necessary practicalities.

We also offer the additional service of follow-up messaging support for teachers via Voxer for a specified number of days. Meaning that they can message us directly for support integrating the training we deliver into their classrooms.  It is important to clarify that this is not a technician support service for issues relating to the functioning of any technology; it is a teaching support service to ease your academic staff into the use of any new technology-focused techniques and classroom activities in the initial period after we deliver our training.  This helps to make the most of any training delivered as your teachers will have someone to turn to as they get used to implementing their learnings. Whilst we will happily liaise with your IT Staff (in fact we recommend this) to enable a smooth transition we can not provide the day-to-day technical support involved in installing, updating or running any hardware, software or networking and computing systems.

In addition to this we offer additional workshop sessions with your sales staff.  These sessions aim to ensure that what your sales teams are selling in relation to digital education is inline with what your academic staff are able to deliver in the classroom.  Typically these are shorter sessions than those run with academic staff as the goal is to provide an understanding of the technology used in class and the benefits for students (i.e. how they can use this information to sell your products) rather than the intricacies of how to teach with the technology.

Our Founder, Claire Collis is our lead trainer in Technology for Teachers and CLIL.  She is CELTA, DELTA, PGCE and PRINCE2 certified.  She began working in the industry at 18 in a summer school role as an Activity Leader.  Since then she has worked as an EFL Teacher, a Teacher Trainer (CLIL and Technology) and in Academic Management.  Currently Claire is working towards her MSc Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh and ACC (Associate Certified Coach) certification with the International Coach Federation.

As these are always bespoke services the cost of delivery ranges dramatically. Please get in touch with us to discuss your aims and budget and we will get back to you with a no obligation quote. Reach out by email: [email protected] or book a video call via the link below.

Strategy and Support Packages for Academic Management

Who you are:

 If you work in any role within Academic Management in the English as a Foreign Language industry and your company is in the process of making changes relating to digital education provision this is for you.

The problems you may be facing:

 You feel out of your depth when it comes to the sudden need to lead your staff into the world of digital education.

The future of your current job role relies on "making it work" with new academic technology, but no one seems to be able to tell you what "it working" will look like.

You worry about how resistant your teaching staff will be to any upcoming changes and want to be able to support them in the best way possible.

You simply need someone to professionally and confidentially support you whilst you support your team during this period of change.

How we can help:

We offer 1:1 strategy sessions via video call, for anyone whose job role is within EFL Academic Management and who is dealing with managing change due to technology integration.  These are priced at £250 for a single 1 hour session, with discounted rates available for purchases of 3 hours or more when purchased in a single transaction.  These sessions are usually most effective if split into 30 minutes blocks throughout the period of technology integration and change management.

You also have the option to add 10 days of messaging support via Voxer on to your strategy sessions. This means you can get unlimited tailored support by message to any questions that come up in this time frame. You can purchase multiple 10 day messaging support packages which are priced at £150 each.  Discounted rates are available for purchases of 30 day blocks or more when purchased in a single transaction.
