What is the Digital Champion Programme?

The world of education technology is changing fast. As our educational establishments move to the cloud, the staff working within them need increasing levels of support.

This exclusive 15-month programme has been put together to support educational establishments with developing the expertise of their Digital Champion.

Through carefully selected modules, Digital Champions will be able to understand and plan for the role of technology within their own schools to:

• Enhance teaching and learning

• Reduce workload

• Support accessibility and inclusion

• Narrow the digital divide

• Support learners on future digital careers so that they can improve outcomes for students and all members of the community.

How do I get there?

• Flexible online blended learning with live sessions delivered outside of teaching time

• Online learning modules mapped to Ofsted EIF, Gatsby benchmarks and government white paper for schools

• Modules delivered by industry EdTech experts including Microsoft and Google

• Practical projects aligned to your school’s digital environment

• The final assessment focuses on the impact of EdTech implementation within your school

• Opportunities for your school to kickstart their journey to becoming a Microsoft Showcase or Google Reference School
