Whether you’re just starting out, or you've reached the top, you can rely on our expertise to help you positively impact teaching and learning in your school.

You, your staff and your school could be next!


Our courses are crafted from the ground up by passionate teachers with global, hands-on teaching experience who strive to constantly improve the course content in line with the latest evidence and research – so you can feel confident that they're right for you and your school.

From training for teaching assistants to courses leading to qualified teacher status (QTS), Subject Knowledge Enhancement and Master's level qualifications, our wide range of courses support educators at every level.

From trusted support staff and passionate graduates to confident teachers and leaders, our unique approach allows learners to study in their own time, learning from their peers as well as from highly experienced tutors. 

Pathway tutors

On many of our courses you'll be assigned a personal pathway tutor who will work with and support you throughout your course. Most of our pathway tutors have over 10 years of teaching experience and have worked in leadership positions. They will tailor your course to your needs, so all the work you complete will be relevant to your learning and development.


We work with our partners to help attract, train, develop and retain world-class teachers to improve more children's lives through education and to help raise global education standards.
