Why choose Online INSET Training?

We connect with our colleagues & friends every day using virtual tools… so it’s not surprising that we expect that in our learning too.

Whether its Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or any other platform, we consult and deliver virtual experiences that are learner-centric. Our approach ensures high engagement and seeks to replicate the sharing and participatory benefits of an ‘in-person’ experience, but in a virtual solution. 

1. Convenience

With online training, your employees can access their INSET courses in school, bringing convenience and saving you money.

2. Cost effectiveness

We can offer discounted prices if you want to train large groups of teachers, saving you even more.

3. Consistency

No matter how many teachers you have, online training courses deliver the exact same content to everyone. You know all your employees will come away with the same quality of practical pedagogical knowledge.

4. Variance

Not all of your teachers will be in need of the same training, at the same time. Investing in online training gives you the opportunity and flexibility to specially tailor every teacher’s professional development.

We also offer 1 on 1 or small group online coaching and mentoring. This is available for teachers looking to improve their practice or school leaders & Headteachers seeking a professional mentor.

It also helps staff retention, as teachers will be content that you are investing time, money and consideration into their INSET training.

5. Accuracy

Online courses are up to date. They are constantly being revised, unlike print books, to ensure that every user receives the most accurate information possible.

6. Engaging material

Interactive online INSET courses will provide your learners with active learning, helping to increase their retention of course material.
