This technology allows your school to train staff and the wider school community, distribute policies and share best practice simply, quickly and cost effectively.

It also acts as a record for all of your training.

  • Headteachers and leaders can create courses in minutes and distribute them online to staff and governor’s. Frees up valuable INSET day time and perfect for inductions.
  • Simply cut and paste your policies and handbook into the system templates and email them to your staff groups. The platform tracks who reads them and generates completion certificates if required.
  • For staff who have been on courses or teachers who want to share best practice, they can build their own courses and cascade the Knowledge and information throughout the school.
  • or start with one of our fully editable, professionally written training assignments, which are on a range of common topics just for schools, including GDPR, Safeguarding, Keeping Children Safe and many more.
