Welcome to The Portal

What We Do

Driven by Teachers

The Portal has been developed from a teacher’s perspective – how I.T. can support and help me in my work.

The Portal:

  • Links teaching to CPD, Standards and Quality Indicators
  • Develops leadership, management and pedagogical skills
  • Develops understanding of current educational issues
  • Develops skills and increases confidence in using I.T.
  • Acknowledges the work of teachers – badging completed activities
  • Integrates systems; reducing duplication, unnecessary form filling . . .
  • Links into live organisation performance /impact monitoring documents
  • Supports collegiate working


The Portal sits on a Moodle platform; an online learning platform which has been specifically designed for education and for use by schools, colleges, universities and businesses globally.
