The UTB Certified Leader & Presenter Programs
Here is what some recent program participants said:
From classroom teacher to part time presenter, and now working full time with the UTB team.  This program has supported me throughout my journey and helped me transition through each of the stages of my development.

Tim Thatcher; New Zealand

I have been a part of the UTB Certified Trainer Program for 2 years now.  Not only have I received ideas and inspiration for leading DT in my school, but have also had the opportunity to present for UTB and Google in various locations around NSW.

Tieren Kilgour; Australia
I have thoroughly enjoyed the monthly webinars, opportunities to bounce ideas off other trainers as well as travel to various parts of Australia to deliver training on behalf of UTB.  My students benefit every time I participate.

What makes this certification program different?
While others are talking about school improvement and transformation, we are getting the job done.

The focus is on action, not discussion:
Whilst discussion is very important, too many programs simply talk about school change.  We all know things need to change, the question is what can we DO to make a difference in a sustainable way? We will show you WHAT is working, WHY it is working and help you set goals that are motivating and achievable.

You are in control:
The Certification Program is is designed with you in mind.  We help you set some goals and provide the training and support you to achieve them.  There are no set courses, you learn what you need, when you need it.

We have a holistic process:
We provide the training you need for staff, a transformation process you can follow, as well as frameworks and survey tools.

We are also a Google, Apple, and Microsoft partner company; we don't just push one device or platform and can help you navigate your way through the myriad of technology choices.
Great! I want to lead my school to be future ready and potentially provide training on behalf of the UTB Team.
