EdTech Shows

Join us for free EdTech training days, organised by BESA in partnership with us and the Department for Education.

These brand-new one-day events are designed to explore how best to incorporate technology into your classroom to improve pupil outcomes and save time.

The roadshow’s focus is on ‘best-practice’ CPD and is led by teachers and school leaders. They're inspired by Education Secretary Damian Hinds’ recent challenge to the tech industry to help school leaders and ICT Leads access technologies that have been proven to work well by other teachers.

He believes Edtech needs to help tackle the five biggest issues facing schools and classroom teachers today. These include developing innovative:

  • Teaching practices to support access, inclusion, and improved learning outcomes for all.
  • Assessment processes, making assessment more effective and efficient.
  • Methods for delivery of teacher training and development by upgrading educator support so they can learn and develop more flexibility.
  • Administration processes to reduce the burden of ‘non-teaching’ tasks.
  • Solutions to lifelong learning to help those who have left the formal education system to get the best from online learning.

"The show helped to reignite my passion for using technology to support teaching and learning and left me with practical advice to support my work back at school."  C. Crowther, Digital Lead

For more than 100 years, we’ve supported educators to inspire generations of pupils. Today, our technology helps schools to hire permanent and supply teachers; manage classroom behavior and track provisions and, as one the UK's largest SCITTs, train tomorrow’s teachers.

Visit our stand at the training days to see how our technology can help you to solve the big issues facing your school and attract, train and empower the teachers you need for your school to succeed.


Transform the way you recruit. Through our digital platform - Tes Portal - you can access our Applicant Tracking System (ATS), a smarter and faster way to hire permanent staff and Supply Manager, a better way to find and compare suitable supply teachers.


Help your staff build their ideal career. Combining the best in online and in-person learning, our teacher training and development programmes help you to support, upskill and develop confident teachers at all level of the profession.


Help your teachers to feel supported and takeback control. With Provision Map and Class Charts teachers can track provisions and take back control in the classroom. Team Groups – a dedicated, internal messaging tool on Tes Portal – brings teachers and their conversations together.
