Our Passionate Approach Helps
You Get To Grips With Technology -
Regardless of Your Current Skill Level.

We work with...

Schools

Educational establishments that want to improve their results by leveraging the power of technology and setting-up their staff and students on the same systems.

Leadership who want their team to be fully equipped and feel confident to use the technology tools in front of them to engage and motivate their students.

Let’s be honest. Organising PD for your team can be pretty difficult. You can never please everyone and the training is usually dead boring.

We get it, the success of this training all rides on you and you don’t want to look like a fool or be “that person” who arranged mind-numbing PD.

The pressure is real! It’s on you (the Principal, the Assistant Principal, the e-Learning lead) to deliver new and innovative curricula despite shrinking budgets and a shortage of relief teachers. Harsh but real right?

And it’s true, you want to develop your staff but struggle to find PD that:

You’re not alone. We have seen the same challenges time and time again in the hundreds of schools we have worked with.

We’re educators at heart, so professional development and training for education is something we’re really passionate about. More than that, our trainers understand the process of delivering fun, useful training that gets your team from where they are now to where they want to be.

The truth is: a solution does exist. It’s called Whole School PD and you can access it here.

Teachers

Who want to reduce their stress levels, manage their workload and find more time to do the things they love – all while feeling comfortable with tech in the classroom.

When you’re delivering a lesson, there’s a huge expectation to effectively use the technology at your disposal. With our training programs, you’ll learn to maximise the benefits of tech in the classroom – and engage students in meaningful lessons that deliver great results.

More than anything, we want to save you time! That’s why we take the time to understand your context and explain how to apply your tech knowledge to your personal teaching routines – all so you can create resources quickly, support your students and spend more time doing the things you love.

Online ‘Learn on Demand’ training is the easiest way to develop your tech skills at home or at school after the bell. Work independently and entirely at your own pace while learning from our trained professionals (without losing that human touch and support).

It’s PD made easy, accessible and enjoyable.

Tertiary & Further Education

Educational organisations that want to improve their results by leveraging the power of technology.

Leaders who want their administrative and research staff capable and efficient in using their everyday tech tools. Leaders who want their teaching staff to be fully equipped and feel confident to deliver engaging and effective online learning.

It’s possible that team members are spending more time frustrated with the technology and procedures in front of them, than getting the job done. 

Even on a day-to-day level, many performance problems are caused by a lack of capability around email, calendar and file organisation. Seriously, something so simple can cause huge issues!

There is no denying team culture has a direct impact on productivity and efficiency. Frustrated, stressed out employees who struggle to get through their to do list doesn’t offer a great breeding ground for positivity, creativity or innovation. 

What if all this overwhelm, stress and frustration your team is feeling could be switched for confidence, improved efficiency and more effective learning programs? Would you be up for the switch? 

With the right training program and the right trainers, this is all very possible! 

Let’s be honest. Organising training for your team can be pretty difficult. You can never please everyone and the training is usually dead boring. 

We get it, the success of this training all rides on you and you don’t want to look like a fool or be “that person” who arranged a mind-numbing workshop. 

The good news… you can easily change this. Upskill your team with the right capabilities for the everyday tools that are important to your organisation’s success.

Here’s How We Take You
From “Argh!” To “Ahhh!”

Here’s How We Take You From “Argh!” To “Ahhh!”

1. We’ll get together for an initial catch up​

First things first, we need to have a chat (because we get a sick thrill diving deep into your technology headaches). We’ll come in and help you discover your personal pain points. What are the real issues for your teams? Where are your bottlenecks? And most importantly, how can we put a plan in place to solve them?

2. We’ll co-construct a tailored training program

No two organisations are the same. And we hate one-size-fits-all training. There’s a big difference between knowing how to use tech and knowing how you can use tech in a way that really adds value to your organisation. So we partner with you to develop a plan of action that works for your organisation and your team members.

3. We’ll deliver some pretty sweet tech training

Let’s face it, people could watch YouTube videos all day and still not know how to open an email.. But with UTB, there are no cookie – cutter training modules or deathly boring presentations with 25,000 slides. Our passionate trainers always execute genuine, engaging training sessions that people love – and really learn from (yes, seriously!)

4. and finally… You’ll see some awesome, long-term results

We’ll boost your wider efficiency and productivity by getting every single one of your team members firing on all cylinders with technology. And it’s not just a one-shot offer… Our trainers will set you up to be able to problem solve and develop staff in-house – there’s always a sustainability plan in place.

Just Choose One of Our Three
Training Options To Get Started!

In-Person Training

Our amazing team of trainers will touch down at your preferred location to deliver a technology class in the flesh. It’s a great option for getting all of your staff together in one place so they can all develop their tech skills at the same time.

In-person training is perfect for teams who want
to boost their knowledge and have a lot of laughs in the process. We always create a fun, friendly learning environment where employees and trainers learn about tech with a smile on their face (we’re not even joking).

Online Live Training

Our online courses have been developed so anyone can expand their tech knowledge – anytime, anywhere. It follows the same process as the in-person training, but attendees join live, virtual classes completely independently.

Even though we won’t be in the room with you, you’ll still learn from our trained professionals without losing that human touch and support. Only thing is, you’ll actually be able to easily develop your tech skills at home or at the office!

Learn On
Demand Training

With ‘Learn On Demand’ training, you get access to more than 30 courses guaranteed to develop your tech skills in meaningful, practical ways. Pre-recorded and hosted online, you can take any class whenever and wherever you want! 

But that’s not all… You’ll also be able to join monthly Q&A calls with our expert trainers to ask any specific questions, as well as share tips and tricks with like-minded people on our official forums and chat rooms. You’ll even get bonus resource packs to practice what you’ve learned.

Our Clients Say ‘We’ve Never Been
Taught Like This Before’... Because We Provide Expert
IT Training That’s Enjoyed, Not Endured!

We’ve all been there. Stuffy, boring tech training that leaves us sprawled over the desk begging for mercy. You end up distracted and disinterested – scrolling through old Facebook photos or online shopping for a pair of killer new shoes.

Let’s see if you can relate…

Here’s what a typical (a.k.a boring!) training session looks like:

A stranger rocks up in a fancy shirt, stands at the front of the room with an overflowing slide deck full of cringe-worthy stock images. For hours on end, this monotone voice goes in one ear and out the other while everyone is doing their best not to fall asleep! Oh… And the person who organised the training is taken off the Christmas list.

It’s part of the reason why so many people don’t engage with technology training – and never fully understand how it can benefit them. It’s just dull!

But at UTB, we do things a little VERY differently....

We Make Tech Training Fun

Learning about technology shouldn’t send you to sleep! And we’ve seen far too many trainers who clearly don’t want to be there delivering programs that are out-dated and irrelevant (they’d have a hard time keeping their own mothers interested). Our promise to you is that our sessions will be relevant, engaging and leave your staff wanting more (we even guarantee it!). 

We Tailor To Your Needs

Whether you’re a small school with a handful of staff or a multinational organisation with thousands of employees, no two training situations are the same. That’s why we take the time to understand your specific targets and adapt accordingly. We never take a cookie-cutter approach to your development.

We Have Amazing Trainers

Seriously, they’re awesome (just ask them) – and endorsed at the highest level. Our trainers understand the process of delivering fun, useful training that gets you from where you are to where you want to be. And you’ll always get up-to-the-minute solutions that work consistently – with minimal resistance and frustration.

All This & More Is Why People Love
Training With Using Technology Better...

It really gets you thinking about ‘why’ you do what you do. Great to have time out from the classroom to experiment and have time to think and discuss different ideas.

Abbey Howard

Highlands Intermediate

Thank you Mike! I really found the 4 week course on ‘How to Motivate, Manage & Engage Your Students’ really interesting and great food for thought on how to improve my class routines and student engagement.

KiKi Tsoli

Banks Town Senior College

Mike, awesome course, fantastic resources and a real wake-up for someone who considers himself technically astute but not necessarily updated!

Shaun Hardy

Technological Teacher

I have been teaching for four years, and this was the best Professional Development course I have completed…even the students said to me “you should do these things more often.

Ailie Granger

Griffith High School

OMG!!! What a change! This class has a lot of students in it, and I find the room very small for all the different personalities.

Vicki Nation

Chair Mathematics Faculty

I just wanted to say an extra big thank you for providing such a great service. Online, at night and in the comfort of home – with my two young children asleep in the other room – pretty awesome actually.
