• What is T³

Type of CPD

Who is it for? 

New product purchase support
One day of training for new users. This free training will be linked to the purchase of class sets of Navigator or the Lab Cradle.


  • Head/PT of department
  • ASTs, Lead Teachers etc
  • Maths and Science teachers
  • GTTP, student teachers
  • STEM professionals 

On Demand (CPD)
We arrange for a T³ trainer to run a half-day, twilight or one-day session of professional development. This is usually aimed at teachers who are new to TI-Nspire, but could be follow-up sessions for TI-84 Plus users. The focus is chosen by the group, for example: data logging, 11-16 topics, post 16 interests e.g. IB etc.  
 


  • School departments (eight or more teachers)
  • Academies (eight or more teachers)
  • PGCE and PGDE departments
  • Local branch meetings e.g. MA, ATM, NCETM 

Local User Group 
We support local user groups in meeting to exchange experiences and share best practice  


  • Practitioners within a geographical area, who have an interest in developing the use of ICT in maths and science teaching 

Seminar Sessions
T³ Trainers deliver sessions at the main subject association conferences  


  • Delegates at subject association conferences, exhibitions etc.

As an example,  at a T³  training/CPD  session, you will:

  • Have the chance to try out TI-Nspire software and handheld devices
  • Be provided with a First Steps Guide and suggestions for classroom activities
  • Have access to a free loan service to try out the technology in the classroom
  • Develop new pedagogic approaches with TI-Nspire
