Our consultancy team is made up entirely of qualified teachers, all with recent experience of working in the classroom, who fully understand the place of ICT in effective teaching and learning. Unlike many trainers and advisers, our team has completed accreditation courses with the leading manufacturers of educational technology such as SMART and Promethean, to name but two. Aware that teachers will have different experiences and expectations, our consultants are sensitive to your needs and are experts at delivering inspirational CPD.
The refresh... programme is designed to be flexible, can be taken at any time, and is built upon the following core elements:
