“Be trained by our 3D printing experts.”

Training for 3D printing in education.

  • Want to learn how to integrate 3D printing into education?
  • Got a 3D printer and don’t know where to start?
  • How do you design models to be 3D printed?
  • Where are 3D printers used and what’s the benefits of using them?

Learnbylayers can train your staff on 3D printing in education. We can even take a class of students and teach them about 3D CAD and how to design models for 3D printing. We offer a training service where we will come to your school and deliver CPD. All training comes with lifetime license to learnbylayers 3D printing curriculum, so your school and pupils can hit the ground running (or should that be printing). Training can be for half a day or a full day, depending on your needs.

Learnbylayers has trained over 100 schools from around the UK who have then passed this onto thousands of pupils. Choose from our sessions below or contact us to create your own training program.

Message from Phil our lead trainer.

“I’ve been teaching children about 3D printing since 2011 and trained schools on how to integrate 3D printing in lessons. 3D printing training is a fun and hands on experience. Workshops will cover the learnbylayers curriculum and what teachers need to know in the classroom. I know what works and what doesn’t work in lessons and will get you and your school up and running in no time.  I hold the Associate Facilitator mark from STEM Learning UK (the biggest provider of STEM teacher training in the UK) and I am a certified Lead Teacher of STEM.  The workshops I deliver are interactive, engaging and most of all challenging. Teachers leave with a breadth of knowledge and the tools they need to start teaching 3D printing.”

“Great examples of how we could use 3D printers in our lessons.”

“Lots of ideas of where and how to engage and enthuse pupils.”

Based outside of the UK?

Learnbylayers is taught in schools around the world. The curriculum is aligned to national education standards from the USA, UK and Australia with more countries added by request. If you are a school from outside the UK and are interested in  training, complete the contact form below and we will get back to you to with a quote.

In 2018 our lead presenter and founder Phil Cotton presented training workshops at the International STEM Conference in Singapore at the prestigious Tanglin trust School. The workshop included 3D printing in the classroom, sustainable principles of 3D printing, designing CAD models and strategies for classroom implementation. Training workshops can be tailored to your schools/organisations need.
