Training - NSW & ACT

 

Teachers never stop learning — that’s why we’ve created a customisable, creative professional development programme designed to help educators get the very best from their students by using our classroom technology and software called ActivInspire. This software is a cross platform software designed for use across multiple operating platforms (Windows, Mac and Linus).
