IRIS Connect exists to bridge the gap between effective professional development and classroom practice. Through its video-based CPD platform, teachers can reflect on their own teaching practice, collaborate with colleagues and share expertise to further develop their teaching quality and improve pupil learning outcomes.

Driven by a community of over 100,000 educators in 50+ countries worldwide, IRIS Connect has grown into an internationally recognised brand. We have been privileged to see that schools and teachers across the globe have similar goals such as maximising outcomes for every learner, but we also recognise and address the regional context and cultural differences.

We apply adaptive expertise and passion to support educators to provide great teaching and learning at all key stage levels and all along their career. Together, we will raise the next generation of experts.
