A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR SCHOOLS IN ENGLAND
I have good news for teachers and headteachers at Key Stage 2 and 3 state schools in England. There's a government-funded initiative that will enable you and your school to get superb training and resources worth over a thousand pounds for free.*
My name is Serdar Ferit. I'm a former media studies teacher and film-maker. I run a company called Lyfta, where I work with a group of hugely talented and dedicated people from around the world, to produce what many teachers say are the highest quality learning resources they've ever used. Please take a look at our trailer below, for a quick intro to Lyfta.
We build immersive experiences, usable on computers, tablets and VR headsets, so children can explore fascinating places and meet interesting people from around the world. Lyfta's learning experiences are carefully linked to the National Curriculum to satisfy KS2 and KS3 learning objectives through a series of lesson plans designed by British and Finnish teachers and education experts. Our resources cover topics such as English/Literacy, Citizenship, PSHE, Geography, RE, Media Studies and Art - and are great for fostering 21st century skills, global awareness and empathy.
THE GLOBAL LEARNING PROGRAMME
I'd like to introduce the Global Learning Programme (GLP) in England. I think it's one of the most valuable initiatives available to schools today. Over 6,500 schools have already registered, and this amazing government-funded initiative is coming to an end this year. Registered schools can access up to £500-worth of e-credits* that they can spend on any GLP-approved CPD on completion of a short online questionnaire (called the Whole School Audit). E-credits must be used to book courses by 27 October 2017. As well as e-credits,* GLP schools also receive support as part of a national network, free resources, and curriculum and subject guidance. For more information, please email [email protected]
GETTING LYFTA'S TRAINING AND RESOURCES FOR FREE*
At Lyfta we absolutely love the Global Learning Programme and everything it stands for, so we have put together a great offer to encourage schools to sign up before the end of July. If you register for the GLP and spend your e-credits* on Lyfta's immersive learning webinar (which can be taken by one or more members of staff, at no additional cost), we will give your school full-access, for every teacher and child, to our suite of learning resources for a year. That's over 60 lessons of high-quality, engaging content and curriculum focused lesson plans.
SIGN UP, REGISTER AND GET OVER £1000 OF RESOURCES FOR FREE
Please put your details below and I'll send you a quick 3-step guide on registering and taking this offer. No payment is required for this offer and there is no obligation to become a paying customer after the free subscription.
*The Global Learning Programme (GLP) is funded by the UK government. All schools can join the programme, but funding is only available to Key Stages 2 and 3 in state schools in England. The GLP in England (GLP-E) is managed by a consortium of partners: Pearson (lead), Geographical Association, UCL Institute of Education, Oxfam UK, Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), SSAT and Think Global. Please note that only schools in England can register for this offer. Schools in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland can register for their respective programmes here, but do not have access to e-credits for CPD.
