Technology Triumphs is a distance learning based service and exam centre, founded by qualified DT teacher and home educating mum, Pip Rothwell. All provisions were designed specificaly for home educated learners.
IN 2018, whilst tutoring a small number of home educating learners, Pip realised that there was a distinct lack of opportunites to achieve formal qualifications in practical and creative subjects outside of a school or college setting.
Technology Triumphs established in October 2018 in order to ;"Make creative learning more accessible to all."*** CLICK HERE TO ENROL ***
Technology Triumphs has approval under the exam board, NCFE.
Courses directly link to the qualifications which are gained 'in house' and are included in the course subscription, removing the need to sit external assessments.
We are very pleased to report that we have a 100% pass rate on our Creative Craft Qualifications.
