Why teachers choose iUgo for their planning

iUgo is different. It is designed by teachers, for teachers. 

It comes mapped to the New Zealand, Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and Catholic Religious Education curricula with ready-made online resources. All set for you to go!

What makes iUgo different?

iUgo was born out of decades of experience that parent company Essential Resources gained in developing teaching resources.

Over the years its founders tried many and various ways to solve the planning problem for teachers. Custom-building iUgo was the only way to create a tool to specifically meet what teachers need; a teacher planner that’s also the best way to document classroom learning.

Ready to go

iUgo has been developed with experienced teachers and curriculum specialists who understand teaching requirements, what good planning looks like and how this is best structured. 

The program has all the planning templates, filing and systems in place for best-practice planning. iUgo guides you through the planning process so you don’t miss anything.

All you need to do is create an account, label your classroom and set your term. Then you are ready to go using the pre-made planning templates.

You can tweak and tailor the planning templates and curriculum content to match your school’s unique planning needs and curriculum objectives.

"It’s a lot quicker with iUgo – everything is there. We would spend a good week planning at the beginning of the year. It’s only a few days rather than weeks now."

Kahla, Deputy Principal

All the support you need

iUgo is designed to be as easy to use as an online calendar. At the same time, you can be reassured that help is there when you need it. Recognising that training and support have to work around teaching commitments, we offer a range of options to make help more accessible for you.

Personalised support

Need to onboard multiple users? Or build planning capability across the team? Let’s set up an online training session. This is a quick and easy way to up-skill everyone.

Live training

Sometimes it is all about you – and you need to hear it one-on-one. Or you may have specific needs as a team. We can customise what you need to make iUgo work for you.

Self-paced learning

Find the answer for yourself, at your own time and pace, with a wide range of training guides, videos support articles and interactive walkthroughs. All are super-easy to use.

We grow with you

Just as the world of education is constantly changing – so is iUgo. The program is always in development, making improvements based on new teacher needs and curriculum requirements. And if someone finds an easier or better way to do something, we make sure you benefit from that too.

As an iUgo customer, you don’t get stuck on old versions; you will always be working on the very latest version at no additional cost. It means you can continue to plan with confidence, knowing you are delivering on the latest curriculum changes and teaching approaches.

"I'm blown away by the responsiveness of the team. In some cases, our requests were ready the following day, and others in the next update."

Anne-Maree, Deputy Principal
