GCSE Achieve is the ultimate tool for secondary schools and colleges to improve learner support for English and maths. All elements of our solution are designed in line with GCSE specifications and are designed to help you fulfil Ofsted’s requirements for quality of teaching, and learning and assessment. GCSE Achieve also includes a collection of updated GCSE Maths Learning Resources that support the 2017 curriculum.
The first part of the GCSE solution is the Screener. It is designed for organisations who find it difficult to decide whether to place learners on a Functional Skills or GCSE programme. By determining which programme learners are more suited to, organisations are able to easily place learners on the correct course. The GCSE Screener includes two short – but rigorous – skills assessments (1x English, 1x maths).
The Screener has proven to be an invaluable tool for organisations, saving the time of both students and tutors.
The GCSE Diagnostic Assessment is the second part of the GCSE process, and is designed to identify learners’ individual skill gaps. Once the assessment has been taken, the system produces an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) which highlights areas of strength and weakness. This is designed to give teachers and students guidance on which areas they need further support for learning and development.
The tracking and reporting information produced by the Diagnostic Assessment is extremely useful, assisting tutors and managers with lesson planning, learner management, and for Ofsted inspection purposes.
The third part of the GCSE process is the GCSE Learning Resources. These are made available to the learner once the Diagnostic Assessment has been completed. The Resources enable individuals to fill in their identified gaps in knowledge (skill gaps) by offering information, examples, and demonstration videos in order to teach the various topics. Learners can pause and replay the videos at any time, giving them flexibility and ensuring they have completely understood each topic. The Resources are fully interactive and self-marking, allowing the learner to get an immediate result and move on to the next stage quickly.
In order to cater for the more extensive 2017 GCSE Maths syllabus, we have developed a collection of additional GCSE Maths Learning Resources. These new resources are available alongside our existing GCSE package. The GCSE English 2017 syllabus has not changed as extensively as maths, and so we have made minor changes to our existing GCSE Learning Resources rather than release additional GCSE English content.
The fourth and final element of the GCSE solution is the Exam Practice. The GCSE Exam Practice is designed to assist each learner with their preparation and revision for GCSE English and maths exams. Exam-style practice questions – accompanied by additional support resources – are presented to the learner to work through at their own pace; these cover both the foundation and higher tiers.
The Exam Practice is extremely valuable for organisations, bridging the gap between learners developing their skills taking the physical exam.
