Training providers

Training organizations provide teacher training and development for teachers and schools.

Research shows that innovative teaching practices combined with technology are two key factors that lead to students' acquisition of 21st century skills. In combination with Microsoft's on-demand trainings found on the Educator Community, face-to-face professional development is critical for many teachers to gain the skills needed. Microsoft's education training partner program connects hundreds of thousands of educators annually to professional development across the globe.
