Our training

Our training is fully engaging with stunning 3D animation and voiceover.

"The fact that staff have to show complete understanding of the topic matter by answering questions on the content of the courses they have studied in order to be awarded a CPD certificate, gives the school great confidence that the learning has been successful. This is not the case at the end of a presentation given by an external tutor. The courses available are appropriate and pitched at the right level to be interesting and informative at the same time. It is extremely useful for the staff to be able to leave a course mid-session and re-join at a convenient time in their busy workload to finish it off. Being a DSL it is important to collate and view the progress of staff accessing their individual courses and to this end the administrative function is invaluable."

Phillip Salathiel, Riverston School

A Sample of our animations:

One of the key problems with online learning is that many providers display little more than word documents or a collection of PowerPoint style slides. This is where we are different, with our extensive use of 3D animation and visual creativity to increase engagement with the topic.

Next: Being in control of how your staff complete training and maintaining your records of training is also crucial to a successful training strategy.


Once your staff commence training, all progress, results and CPD certificates are presented in the Admin Dashboard as evidence of training.
