ICT Training & Support

Curriculum

Schools are very focused on staying current with ICT technologies and allocate a considerable portion of their budgets to ensure that teachers and pupils have the equipment and applications required. IES wants your staff to confidently use the ICT equipment they have and see the impact that this can make to the quality of teaching, progress of children and engagement in your classrooms.

IES offers tailored classroom based computing lessons including coding, publishing, movie making and game making. We also offer specific teacher  training on how to use many popular iPad and Android Apps such as Book Creator or Explain Everything along with the traditional Microsoft packages.

A free “taster” session with our fully qualified ICT Trainer is included with every new Service Level Agreement.

Because every school’s requirements are different, price is on an application basis and multiple sessions can be purchased for bulk discount
