Ongoing training

We run training for admin and technical staff, advanced sessions and workshops. If it's not here, please talk to one of our team and we would be happy to work with you to design a session that fits your needs.

Our training team is made up of experienced educators who understand the importance of ensuring that school project teams and teachers are properly resourced and equipped to make the most of Firefly. In addition to the normal introductory training, we also offer the following.

Departmental workshops

Sessions focussing on subject specific ways of using Firefly. For example, for music departments, creating podcasts, embedding Spotify playlists, sharing sheet music etc.

The workshops are also a great opportunity for members of departments to work together and collaborate on how they will use Firefly, share resources and good practice.

App training

For those schools introducing 1:1 programs or rolling out tablets to staff, these sessions are an excellent way to ensure that teachers make the most from the Teacher and Student Planners. All the workflows for setting, marking and annotating work are covered as well as offering suggestions for complimentary apps that both students and teachers can use.
