Essential training for busy schools.

With our easy-to-use eLearning platform and extensive library of courses, it’s simple to get your staff trained in Cyber Security, GDPR, Health & Safety and Covid-19.

We’ve developed a sector-specific learning experience that delivers staff training effectively and at a time that suits them.

Training tailored for the Education Sector

Training is an ongoing legal requirement for school management. Affording staff the time and headspace to carry out the necessary training is often the most difficult challenge. Our eLearning platform for schools has been carefully designed to engage and educate your staff on important topics such as GDPR, Cyber Security and Health & Safety. Courses are delivered through video modules with engaging course content, infographics and retention tools.

Course Assessments

Each course concludes with a 20 question multiple-choice exam. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout.

Certificate of Completion

Having completed their assessment the course participant will then be issued with a certificate of completion.

Certificates, training progress and results are all stored and can be accessed to act as proof of learning and demonstrate legal compliance if needed.
