Training Onsite Support and Assistance

Onsite Training and Support

We will be having a huge number of onsite support and training sessions around the country this year. We'll be taking new technologies, new products, new software and ideas to organisations wanting to look at how to incorporate them, what they offer, where they fit, and who they suit. Let us know what products and support you need and we can put this together for you in a time frame that suits you.

Specialist School Visits

Full Day: 9.30am – 2.30pm

We have run a number of sessions for specialist schools, and keen to make these available as hands on time for others.

We understand release time is tricky, so can be available between the hours of 9.30am – 2.30pm if it is easier to have small groups come through. We are happy to customise each session to meet specific needs – let us know what you need.
