Professional Learning

Our professional learning consultation team endeavour to create conversations with school leaders, teachers & technicians around ‘why’ technology in education is critical to the success of fully integrating digital technologies in learning & teaching.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach for the successful design of strategic plans, including change management strategies, and designing professional learning models, which is why we want to discuss pedagogical and technological considerations.

Professional Development

We’ve also developed a wide range of courses for corporate, education, mobility and design workflows and applications. Our courses are designed as a quick start, a refresher, or an advanced session for busy design, business and education professionals. Our trainers monitor current trends and best practice to deliver the most up-to-date content to our clients. Each course is accompanied by interactive or PDF notes.

We provide our courses on a regular basis across our various office locations, as well as making them available on demand. We can customise and even develop original training programmes for specific and unique software / hardware workflows.
