Access Education: ‘Let’s revolutionise KS3’

KS3 should build a strong foundation that gives learners the vital skills they’ll need for KS4 and beyond – but we can go further than that…

Need to know

If you’re an educator looking for an innovative and comprehensive resource to enhance and support your teaching and learning, the Access Education Key Stage 3 product is the solution you’ve been looking for.

Providing secondary schools with a bundle of content within GCSEPod, the product gives educators everything they’ll need to support students across years 7 to 11 throughout their journey to GCSE success.

Featuring a comprehensive selection of resources broken down into easily digestible units and lessons, students can access a mix of audiovisual learning and formative assessments to enhance their learning experience.

“Students can access a mix of audiovisual learning and formative assessments to enhance their learning experience.”

Conceived as an immersive and interactive package that students will find engaging, the content is aligned with the national curriculum in encouraging critical thinking and problem-solving skills, while providing learners with a thorough understanding of the material in the following ways:

Structured content: Any key vocabulary used in a lesson is defined at the start, to assist with understanding essential words that might otherwise present barriers to learning. Learners can also opt to undertake formative assessments to test their higher level knowledge.

Independent learning: As well as supporting in-classroom learning, the product is perfect for independent learners. The course can be studied at an individual’s own pace, assigned as homework or completed in the lesson during independent study time.

Reporting and end of unit assessments: Reports provide an accurate overview of progress throughout the academic year, recording assessment scores and the number of videos watched, enabling educators to quickly intervene should they notice any problems or knowledge gaps.

The product is designed to be adaptive, making suitable for all learning styles and abilities, while ensuring that learning sticks first time.

Next generation

With young people now used to fully immersive digital experiences, on-screen PowerPoint presentations no longer have the impact they once did.

This is where the KS3 product really comes into its own, since it’s designed to engage pupils as they progress towards KS4, their GCSE exams and beyond.

“The KS3 product is packed with a mix of audiovisual learning tools, as well as gamifying quizzes and assessments to promote engagement.”
