Google for Education

Since the start of the Pandemic, Amberfield College embarked on a journey to find practical and innovative solutions to drive quality education without interruptions. This led us into a partnership with Google Workspace for Education. From 2022, our learners and teachers use a tailor made Learner Management System designed by Google which allows teachers to engage learners in a more interactive approach with links to real life scenarios in any given subject.

Kindly contact our Google Administrator, Mr Pillay, for any Google Education/ Classroom related information: kpillay@amberfieldcollege.co.za
