While it’s encouraging to read that nine out of ten teachers say they’ve improved their tech skills since 2020, over half of educators we spoke to aren’t happy with their edtech training. They feel it needs to be faster, more practical and better support their professional development. 

It’s something we want to put right. It’s something we’re changing with Lenovo Edtech Consulting. 

Teaching the teachers

As a trusted education training partner we’ve seen first-hand how harmful a digital skills gap can be. Educators can sometimes feel ill-equipped to deal with new tech. Or that their knowledge doesn’t reflect what students are going through outside the classroom.

Which is why, alongside Tablet Academy, we take a practical approach to get teachers up to speed. Talking to you, your teachers and support staff, we start by getting a better understanding of your current situation and where you want to be. Then looking at how we can help you get there.

We know the path to any successful future starts with simple steps. Let us show you which ones to take.

Teaching the teachers

Did you know?


Of UK educators are unhappy with the quality of their edtech training


Of teachers are trained in ICT skills specifically for learning


Of educators have reported experiencing ‘tech fatigue’

What do we need to do?

We believe there are four key factors in supporting educators so they can learn how to use effective technology for enhanced teaching.

Positive Tech
Positive technology attitudes

Being more engaged about what’s going on can drive more effective integration of ICT into teaching. Giving them better and more valuable support, in turn gives them better insights into ICT adoption and integration in teaching and learning.

Successful teacher development
Effective skills development

With practical, customised, and continuous training, skills can not only be kept up to date but also enhanced for the latest changes ahead. 

Supportive school culture

Having the support of senior school leaders is essential for successful technology integration. They play a pivotal role in getting necessary equipment and infrastructure into classrooms.

Teacher self-efficiency

A teacher’s sense of success and confidence in technology integration is crucial. Ensuring they are self-efficient significantly influences their professional development and wellbeing.

Choosing the right steps

Students can rely on teachers for correct, suitable advice and support to create, calculate, and collaborate on schoolwork.


“Our vision is for every student to be able to be equipped for the world of work, to be confident using their digital tools, and for our teachers to be able to collaborate on content and teach really, really engaging lessons”
