WHO IS IT FOR?

SLT

Image
As a member of the SLT, you shine when it comes to managing your staff… but you may not have as much confidence or experience using edtech tools and software, or have access to an in-house IT department/ Computing/Digital Learning Lead or outsourced support team. More time and training to develop a successful edtech strategy is essential.

COMPUTING/DIGITAL LEARNING LEAD
Image
If you’re a Computing/Digital Learning Lead, you live and breathe technology: how to use it, how to resolve issues, and what the edtech benefits are. However, you may not be as experienced in people management or devising an edtech strategy that can be rolled out to meet your school’s specific requirements. You want more planning and management training.

As Microsoft’s leading training partner in the UK, we have trained 1,500 schools and 40,000 teachers to use education technology in a way that is best suited to their specific needs. To further support schools with the demand for more edtech tools, we created the Edtech Leaders Programme.

The programme provides schools with an easy-to-access training platform for the SLT and Computing/Digital Learning Lead. We recognise the gap between technology and strategy management, the challenge of integrating edtech across the curriculum in all subjects, and the growing responsibility for safeguarding children online
