Education Resources

Welcome to the Education Service! Here you’ll find a wide range of teaching and learning resources, as well as a growing range of CPD opportunities. We are passionate about teaching and learning and through the South West Teacher Network we invest in teachers to develop skills that will enable them to utilise technology to impact positively on teaching and learning. We are also the South West Regional Partner for the Barefoot Computing Project working with volunteers to bring Barefoot workshops to a school near you!
