Pink Kiwi is a new company building on years of experience in the education and training sectors to bring a unique and memorable twist on traditional events and CPD training. We work with children, students, teachers and parents to make using and embedding technology a fun and meaningful experience.
But we are not just about technology, we believe that young peoples lives should be a balanced experience of indoors, outdoors, 21st century skills and plain old good fun! So as well as our own planned events we work with a range of other experts to give a full package of experiences. We ensure that all these experiences are interesting, memorable as well as involve learning something new! Whenever possible we ensure that participants have something they have made to take away with them.
All our trainers are qualified teachers and Apple Authorised Education Trainers with clean DBS checks.
