We are a Microsoft Showcase School 2022-2023.
Shireland Collegiate Academy has been a successful Microsoft Showcase School for many years and we are proud to have been awarded showcase school status for another year. Every year, our application demonstrates our development with digital technologies. We use EdTech to successfully enhance teaching, reduce workload and create efficiencies, prepare future learners and establish a 21st century learning environment.
Teachers at Shireland are committed to our digital transformation journey. We provide bespoke CPD opportunities to support and build their skills with technology for education so they can deliver their curriculums confidently and creatively. Developing our learners’ technological literacy is important to creating 21st century learners who can confidently access their digitally rich curriculums.
Our work with external EdTech companies, including Microsoft, also creates opportunities for staff development. Many of our teachers have obtained Microsoft’s Educator Expert and Certified Expert accreditations and have become part of a national community of EdTech practitioners.
