In an ideal world, the long holiday would be the perfect opportunity for young people to catch up on any curriculum work they may have missed, to read extensively and to develop their understanding of the wider world. In reality, this is a time when gaps, particularly in reading, open up between disadvantaged students and their more privileged peers. But organising catch-up sessions, collating resources and keeping students engaged are difficult and time-consuming tasks.
If you're planning summer schools, transition programmes or any other extra provision, we can help.
Our mobile learning libraries cover core topics in literacy and numeracy and include enrichment materials for other subjects. Students can catch up and consolidate their skills and knowledge wherever they are and can work at their own pace. They can work either on their own personal device or on a distraction-free locked down tablet provided by us.
See MyLibrary for more information on mobile learning resources and tablet schemes.
Of course holidays are also a time for young people to relax and recharge. But for many older students, decisions about university applications are looming, and planning ahead can help to relieve some of the stress. Hannah wrote a couple of weeks ago about open days, online research and other preparatory activities that will help students feel calm, confident and in control of the process.
Accessed via phones, tablets and web, University Applications covers all this and more in detail.
