Courses and Consultancy

Having worked in schools and universities for the past 30 years I understand that budgets and staffing vary from year to year. What doesn't vary is the commitment teachers and lecturers have to improving the learning experience for their students. I am committed to helping you and your students to learn in exciting and innovative ways through the use of appropriate technology in a way which suit your budget and needs.

The following courses and support packages are a starting point - if you don't see exactly what you need, please contact me and we can discuss bespoke courses or support to suit you, your staff and your budget.
