Contact us and speak with one of our friendly iUgo consultants who will discuss your customisation needs in more detail and create a plan of how this can be best implemented in the program. There are many parts of iUgo can that be customised to accommodate localised curriculums, preferred school plan templates and more.
Just like a teacher meets the needs of their students by delivering learning in different ways, iUgo offers many tools to train teachers on how to use the program. We have a team of experts who offer live training sessions via your preferred webinar systems such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams. The trainer will take your team through different examples of planning in the program and answer any questions along the way. We also provide inbuilt learning tools such as interactive walkthroughs and video tutorials to help your team get the most out of the program and transition quickly.
We encourage teachers to keep their teaching resources linked to their planning as plan evidence, files can be uploaded to the program directly or you can access Google Drive and link files instantly.
When you sign up, you choose your relevant curriculum. iUgo will then set your account to be aligned to this curriculum, which means your plan templates are laid out according to best practice requirements. Then within your plans you are able to create direct links to the curriculum outcomes and objectives. These are organised and presented according to your chosen learning areas and levels.
Also, it is important to note that iUgo keeps up to date with curriculum changes in the program. We want to ensure that our users are always using the most up to date and accurate curriculum program.

As the entire school’s planning can be accessed within the same system, senior management have all the planning they need to review at their fingertips. They can easily keep up with the teaching and learning going on in their school, as they can see what is being taught and when, and what the next steps are for each group, as these events happen. With all this information, they can support students and teachers as needed and identify any gaps in planning.
We work closely with iUgo users during ERO reviews and offer a guest login and support so that ERO can review planning. We have had very positive feedback on how schools have adapted the iUgo framework to reflect their school curriculum development. Although ERO cannot endorse a commercial product, school leaders have told us that iUgo has enhanced their ERO review process and outcomes.
