Google Training for Educators is a two part training course held on the 7th of November and 14th of November. Tickets are sold as a package for both evenings and cannot be purchased separately. 

G Suite for Education is a suite of tools that can help you increase opportunities for critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity, all while supporting the learning objectives that you have for your students. As of 2017 Google Suite for Education now has over 70 million users and is increasing. It is used in a wide range of schools all over the world.

Google Training for Educators will cover the core functions of a number of Google Apps with the aim of providing attendees with the basic skills, knowledge and hands-on experience to use them over the course of two evenings on the 7th and 14th of November. The apps that will be covered include Google Chrome, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Classroom, Sites and Extensions. The two sessions will run for two hours each and will include information on how to register, take and pass the Google Certified Educator Level 1 Exam.

Passing the exam will award the taker with a certificate and enable them to take the Google Certified Educator Level 2 exam, and then the Trainer and/or the Innovator certifications that grant access to a host of resources upon completion.
