At TechTrain, we know that tech literacy is essential for the 21st Century learner; it trains the mind to think, and equips them for Industry 4.0.
Our international team of education and tech specialists designs and delivers learning paths and solutions - across various tech subjects - to captivate individual students, and to drive our client schools' learning brands forward.
My generation has witnessed digital technologies steadily appear in every aspect of our lives, impacting the way we work, travel, shop, learn and even play.
I founded TechTrain with the firm belief that technology should not dominate the lives of our children! They must become more than simple technology consumers by engaging with it in healthy and useful ways. They must learn to harness it, to shape it, and to create it, in order to meet the major challenges in their lives, in professional and social contexts, and at local and global scales.
Education is being disrupted worldwide, and a rethink of how we teach and learn is underway. TechTrain's vision is to adapt the 'toolkit' that a school provides to its students, allowing them to become the effective problem-solvers and leaders of the future. This toolkit integrates tech literacy and global awareness with a mix of essential skills: critical-collaborative-computational thinking abilities, based in, and through, English language acquisition.

Through workshop environments and project-based learning, students apply technology concepts to solve real problems. TechTrain's in-house developed short courses, and long-form curricula, move students up through essential coding concepts, game creation, robotics, app build, and more.
We teach more than how to code, we show students how to be critical, creative thinkers. And we go even further still; integrating important 21st century themes of global and environmental awareness, sustainability and social responsibility, students become empowered, smarter and more responsible.
