We make training easy. We aim to deliver core information and skills in small, bite-sized chunks. This helps you to hop in and out as needed or complete entire courses at your own pace in an organised and manageable manner.

Boost your confidence in IT

We appreciate the challenges that schools face. Sonny, the founder, spent over 15 years as a teacher and senior leader in schools and works hard to ensure that all our training is relevant and accessible to all school staff.

We connect you with great content. We have all grown used to spending endless hours searching for the right learning material, whether it’s browsing through search results or watching the wrong video. We do all of the legwork for you.

They have helped me to develop my own skills and to stretch and challenge myself digitally, allowing me now to take those skills forward and to use them in our delivery.
