About

Since 2008, OLT have delivered specialised classroom based, practical training to teachers, teaching support staff, principals and senior leaders in 104 countries. The programme is made up of 17 blended and open short courses, with new courses and webinars developed in response to education priorities and the needs of our learning community.

In Australia OLT has been delivering training since 2008 and continues to work closely with our Australian partners to develop the courses and the learning management system that underpins its success.

OLT has created courses for the Education Departments in New South Wales (Disability and Multicultural) and Northern Territory. Some of these have replaced traditionally delivered courses, and some replaced existing online courses.

We’ve also adapted our own courses, in partnership with all of the education departments in Australia, to suit the Australian school system.
