This section aims to provide information on how Darlington College can you help your school or college leverage educational technology for its staff and students.
We’re is at the heart of the local community, striving to serve the community’s educational needs. The College has 1500 students in further education with 97% pass rates on all level 3 qualifications and is rated number 1 in the Tees Valley overall student achievement rates.
Staff at the college are proud to have been award DFE funding via the Edtech Demonstrator Schools and Colleges Programme. This funding allows the college to staff to share their knowledge of the use of educational technology and its effective application.
Our Journey with Educational Technology
Darlington College’s strength lies in its staffs’ ability to use a range of edtech tools effectively for both teaching and learning. Although Darlington is a “Google College” it is able to support Microsoft products too, such as Teams and Office 365.
We are keen to work with a large number of schools and colleges through the use of webinars and by providing pre-recorded guides and how to guides. We are able to offer both teaching remote guidance and support with infrastructure, safeguarding and security issues.
We would be particularly interested in working with schools and colleges new to Google for Education and those that are established but are looking to improve their delivery. Furthermore, we have a great deal of experience with working with the ProSuite MIS (Advance) and of using various free and paid for assessment for learning tools such as Quizziz and Socrative.

About the project
As well as being chosen in the first 20 Edtech Demonstrators we are one of only two FE colleges. In 2015 Darlington College was awarded Leading light Status by its Google partner Vitalize, due to its innovative use of technology, especially Google for Education tools. We are able to offer assistance with setting up and using Google Classroom from an administrator’s, teacher’s and learner’s point of view.
We can also help with MS Teams and Office 365 and we extensively use the Advance ProSuite MIS.
