GCSEPod is delighted to be working in collaboration with Skills Forward with the shared ambition of making a difference to learner outcomes.

We are delighted to be working in collaboration with Skills Forward, having worked in partnership with NCFE for the last 12 months. A successful partnership comes from sharing common values – in this case, the learner is at the heart of everything we both do.

Co-Founder and Director, GCSEPod

GCSEPod is the UK’s leading provider of short, 3-5 minute quality assured videos, or ‘Pods’, which are bespoke to all major exam boards for 27 GCSE subjects as well as NCFE vocational qualifications. Combined with data analysis, assessments and identification of knowledge gaps, learners can improve outcomes while their teachers and tutors save precious time.

In addition to the full English and Maths GCSE specifications, the recently launched Achieve English and Achieve Maths playlists and workbooks, which target the key areas to help secure a Grade 4, are already proving popular in schools and colleges.

By working with Skills Forward, one of the UK’s leading eLearning assessment solutions for Functional Skills and GCSE plus are part of the NCFE Group too, we expect learners to benefit from our vast combined expertise, understanding of their needs and synergistic services.

The unique assessments and resources provided by Skills Forward can transform how organisations approach Functional Skills, GCSEs and employability skills. Their digital learning and development platform software is used by colleges, training providers and employers who want accurate visibility of learner progress across a variety of work-based learning programmes as well as to digitally capture evidence of a learner’s skills, knowledge and occupational competency.

Our collaboration also provides GCSEPod customers discounted access to the Skills Builder Platform with diagnostics targeted at learners resitting their GCSEs. These diagnostics assess a learner’s strengths and skill gaps, and then produce a colour-coded individual skills plan together with targeted resources. Combining these resources with the modern, learner-friendly, content available in GCSEPod to create personalised learning playlists will only help to improve learner outcomes.
