Technology Triumphs is a distance learning based tuition service and exam centre, founded by qualified  DT teacher and home educating mum, Pip Rothwell.

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."


Technology Triumphs has approval under the exam board, NCFE.
Courses and tuition 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.

When you enrol onto a Technology Triumphs Creative Craft distance learning course, you will receive the following:

  • Engaging content given electronically in the form of workbooks
  • Access to a designated Course Tutor and Course Assessor (Qualified and experienced teachers)
  • Filmed tutorials
  • Membership to dedicated Facebook groups with regular competitions for students
  • Written and personal feedback from your Course Assessor
  • Registration and Certification (and ALL exam fees included) with the exam board, NCFE.
