Training is essential to feeling confident and progressing your career in any profession. With Spongy Elephant you can train on new things and refresh your existing skills in bite-size chunks at a time and place that suits you. Learn, forever.

Spongy Elephant looks brilliant!
Jon Brown | National Leader of Education, Executive Headteacher | Discovery Schools Academies Trust

Professional development is all about personal growth and reaching new goals. Spongy Elephant is your online portfolio to evidence learning, unlock certificates and realise the potential of technology in education.

I've learnt so many new things in such a short space of time. It would have taken me years to find out about how to use Google and G Suite with my students. Love it!
Zoe | Teacher | Forest Academy

Often the real benefits of traditional training are networking and connecting with fellow educators. When you sign-up at Spongy Elephant you join a community of educators just like you, globally! The difference? You can stay connected. For good.

This is a very good style for learning. Thank you!
