For learning transformations to occur you need to see your learners putting your teaching into action; set them the task of recording themselves using what you've taught.
Remember, going forward it isn't just about offering courses and leaving them high and dry. The learning journey has only just begun.
"Within hours of meeting staff in my new school I was able to personalise each of their learning pathways through Guide."
Karen Smith, Headteacher, Ferham Primary School
Assess & support
Now you make the difference.
Developing teachers, who trust you as school leaders, rely on you, now need you to offer a specific and tailored reflection from you on their video uploads.
You've been offering advice face to face for years, but now you can give much more precise and detailed commentary, exactly where it's needed, far quicker and more succinctly than ever
Add detailed feedback in-video
Leave supportive commentary
Track learning increments
Our software prompts you to leave feedback within 72 hours. How much feedback you've left for each teacher you're supporting will be tracked so you can allocate your time and prioritise with ease.
"The video feedback tools allowed my mentor to give me great, detailed advice. I could actually see how and where to improve!"
Sandra Anikpe, QTS Candidate
Collaboration and swarming.
You don't have to be the only teacher on your course. You can invite colleagues you trust to assist in giving feedback.
You can also allow learners to learn from other learners by allowing them to access other learners' answers and their feedback.
Create swarm response groups
Add forums to each learning section
Track learning increments
There are so many ways Guide Connect can support learners that will help them and provide them with a learning trail other users can benefit from.
"The Guide system has allowed our staff to complete qualifications in a third of the time we previously did."
Dr Ian Baird, Educational Training Lead, ADVETI
Only pay for qualifications after they've been completed.
As leaders, we've been there; you purchase courses for staff who are unable to complete them. Precious finances are wasted. You want to give each member of staff the support and opportunity, with one eye on your training budget.
All qualifications and professional awards are included in our library. Staff can work on them over any time period at no extra charge. When all assessment criteria is complete, your senior leadership team is satisfied they have met the objectives, then you pay a small accreditation fee, making it official.
Qualifications we offer include:
QTS (AO) Qualified Teacher Status (Assessment Only)
HLTA Higher Level Teaching Assistant (Level 4)
AET Award in Education and Training (Level 3)
Share and monetise your expertise.
When your courses start to make a difference you have the opportunity to share them far and wide. Create your own bespoke landing page so more teachers and educators can benefit from your knowledge.
Create free or paid packages for any of your courses
Facilitate online payments with ease
One-off, monthly or annual subscriptions
