FREE learning platform training

DfE have increased their expectations of schools in providing remote learning (30/09/20: See here for full details). To support schools to respond to this, Bradford Teaching School Hub has commissioned the Curriculum Innovation Centre to deliver a remote programme of training and support for one teacher and/or ITT trainee teacher in each Bradford school using the most popular learning platforms, namely G Suite for Education (including Google Classroom), Microsoft 365 (including Microsoft Teams) and Seesaw, in order to equip them with the confidence and skills to deliver a rich learning experience to pupils and/or students when providing remote learning in light of full or partial closure due to COVID-19. These colleagues will also be supported to provide training to colleagues in their own school. 

Participants in the training are trained in one of these learning platforms. Training commences on the 13th October 2020 (see below for details).

From an ITT provider’s perspective, this is an opportunity to engage in an innovative approach to supporting pupil progress for your trainee teachers and links directly to the ITT core content framework.

DfE guidance on providing remote education support:


Training programme: Developing the skills and confidence of teachers in providing rich learning experiences via a learning platform.


The training programme will be delivered remotely using the learning platform you register for.

Each training programme has four session: three of 1 hour 45 minutes and a final session of 60 minutes. Two dates are available for each session; please choose the date the best suits you. Where possible, we’ve provided afternoon after school options for each session.

Sessions commence mid-October 2020 and conclude in early December 2020. As this programme is funded by the Hub using public funding, schools are asked to commit to all aspects of the programme, including gaps tasks, before registering.

Full details are available via the programme booklet:
