Digital Champion Training Programme


Tablet Academy is excited to announce their partnership with leading digital training provider Primary Goal to launch the arrival of the exciting new Digital Champion training programme for schools in September.

The Digital Champion programme enables primary and secondary education providers to better support their teachers and further engage learners with new and upcoming digital technologies, using existing staff and Apprenticeship Levy funding.

Designed in response to recent global events, the Digital Champion training programme coaches the learner to implement a much needed digital strategy for the school and provide high quality and engaging teaching and learning, using the latest technology tools that many already have in place and had to embrace during lockdown. 

Delivered via blended learning, the Digital Champion programme responds to key challenges faced in schools today with a fast-paced move to technology adoption.  The emphasis is on improving school outcomes, highlighting financial savings and efficiencies, reducing staff workload, increasing social mobility to contribute towards improved Ofsted outcomes.

The Digital Champion partners with all key education technology suppliers, including Microsoft and Google.  The training programme takes the school through a practical journey of digital transformation, enabling true learner engagement across the complete teaching and learning experience.  This is a must-have for every school in the current climate.

Delivered to a Level 3 apprenticeship standard as a 24-month programme, this qualification can be funded through your existing Levy contribution or via a Levy transfer.  The Digital Champion programme is accessible to staff at all levels throughout your school – from teaching assistant to headteacher.  Should you prefer to recruit a new member of staff for the role of Digital Champion, Primary Goal can offer you a free recruitment service and support you to take advantage of the government incentive payments available for new staff from 1st August which can offer up to £3,000 towards the salary cost.
