Who is BlueSky for?
What is your scarcest commodity? Time.
With BlueSky, you have a total solution in one place to manage staff development, professional learning and school quality assurance. The result: 85% of school leaders report that BlueSky saves them about five hours a week.
BlueSky is your professional portfolio: the central focus for you and the school to map and track growing success for you both. The system brings a level playing field for all colleagues, is available 24/7, and replaces time consuming (and insecure) paper. It’s also uniquely portable – take it wherever your career takes you.
With multiple schools, the benefits of BlueSky multiply as well. Live Trust dashboards mean instant access (with suitable permissions) to all information, within and between schools. This saves time, enables faster interventions, and helps you adopt a consistent approach. This can then foster cross-school cultures and expectations.
What only BlueSky gives you
Your commitment is just a 1-year contract, with a one-off cost. And set up takes one hour.
Only BlueSky can be moved from school to school. It’s a career portfolio for life.
A universal tool

Only BlueSky, the market leader, is a Premier Partner endorsed by ASCL and approved partners with ISBL.

Your own shade of Blue
Tailor and flex BlueSky to your particular school’s needs.
BlueSky reaches everywhere and everyone in your school.
Projects is about collaborating on every aspect of professional practice. It enables you to share and gain knowledge, between and across different schools.
Because it's easy – everyone shares more.
A 'teacher on a page'.
The Progress Summary gives you an instant resumé of a teacher's entire career, distilled onto a single page.
Every element of professional learning: managed, organised and powerfully displayed.
When time is of the essence (and when isn't it?), the Personalised Dashboards module brings everything to hand.
Live short cuts to activities records, resources, community and live summaries of professional profiles.
You can also communicate directly with other staff, and check on dates and notifications linked to deadlines.
