We're sorry

Teachfind is temporarily down for scheduled maintenance

We're shifting Teachfind to a more powerful setup, so when it comes back it will be much faster than before.

We should be back up and running within a day or two.

In the meantime, why not find out about our new application Teacher Dashboard.

It turns Office365 into a powerful LMS, and it's free...

Tailors office365 to teaching.
