The Online Teacher’s and Educator’s Symposium is an ongoing program designed to provide you with many tools and resources.

These sessions will reframe the role of teachers and educators in developing innovative solutions to inspire and motivate change, and reflect on your personal pedagogies and philosophy.

Through the use of interactive downloadables and live webinars and pre-recorded content from some of the best in our field, we work with you to inspire change, support your staff, flex your thinking and provide you with the confidence to implement it all within your own environment. 

What is included?

All participants in our TOTES program will be given continuous access (for as long as you like - 2 months, 12 months? Your choice) to their own self-paced online learning platform where they will find an endless library of pre-recorded sessions and workshops from some of the top specialists in their field. 

Throughout the course of your program, we will launch new live webinars and downloadable workbooks monthly, to keep ideas and momentum fresh and relevant; and to give you the opportunity to partake in relevant and interesting conversations and connect with experts.
