Having educationalists & teachers leading training was fantastic. It has moved all our staff on.

Gaia offers a first class training service delivered by our network of expert educational technology asscociates. Our aim is to help you secure the highest impact from your ICT investment by supporting use for teaching, learning, management and administration. Most of our training is delivered on-site for school, academy or college audiences. We offer full day courses, half day and twilight sessions. We provide high level briefings for whole staff groups and more focused inputs to departmental or selected teams.
We offer a highly flexible and bespoke approach to delivery so as to achieve minimal disruption and maximum impact and have assembled an outstanding network of training and professional development partners. A particularly innovative approach in this respect is the provision of Gaia ICT Weeks, where we put trainers on site for 3,4 or 5 days and teachers attend workshops in their non-contact periods. This is a great mechanism for hitting all staff with key learning as a foundation for future development.
We can meet almost any requirement and provide:
Go-live training - familiarisation to facilitate first use of new hardware and software;
Functional training - to instruct on how to use new hardware and software
Pedagogic training - to develop use of ICT as a tool for teaching & learning
Transformational professional development - designed to facilitate sustainable change and transformed approaches resulting from access to new technologies
