Leighton buzzard man helps set up digital learning platform
AdEducate was created ti ensure that the pandemic did not have a negative impact on children's learning
A man from Leighton Buzzard has helped set up a digital learning platform to offer national curriculum and 11+ support to children.
AdEducate has been created by two Independent School teachers with a passion for making learning fun who want to ensure that the current pandemic does not have a negative impact on children's learning.
Adam Winchester, from Leighton Buzzard, and Ed Sullivan-Pond, from St Albans, wanted to help bridge the gap in children's learning caused by the coronavirus pandemic and prepare them for their next steps.
Adam said: "We have over 20 years teaching experience spanning both the State and Independent sectors, therefore fully understand how to deliver first class teaching and learning experiences for all abilities.
"Combining our unique expertise with our understanding of digital learning, we have created a new platform which allows your child to learn in their own time and on their own terms."
The AdEducate Catch Up Packs were released on June 1, and cover all of the English and Maths topics that children will need to be ready for secondary school.
From September 1, the AdEducate Subscription Service will launch, delivering initially English and Maths lessons to support preparation for end of year exams, SATs and 11+.
Ed said: "We recognised that our school was delivering a much higher quality of lessons than a lot of other schools and so wanted more children to benefit and reduce the inequality.
"We wanted to help bridge the gap in learning caused by coronavirus and give something back to the community" which is why they are giving their Catch Up Packs free of charge to NHS workers.
"The Catch Up Packs are fun and engaging and are targeted at upper Key Stage 2 children, we have given away nearly 300 Catch Up Packs to the children of our amazing NHS!
"The packs are free for children of NHS workers but they are accessible for everyone
"We created the content for the Catch Up packs in our free time and during the school holidays, and we have continued teaching throughout.
"We wanted to give everyone the opportunity to access these resources.
"At the moment we are offering just English and Maths but we hope to expand and cover more subjects in the future."
