@Quizlet -  the global learning platform and app known for its engaging AI-powered revision tools, today announces the launch of its GCSE Resource Centre - a new and completely free, comprehensive online bank of revision resources based on exam board specifications.

The Quizlet GCSE Resource Centre consists of 10,000 study sets across 24 key GCSE subject categories and has been created by a team of verified educators, partners and publishers - including Hodder, EdPlace and Cool Geography. Built onto the Quizlet platform, the GCSE content spans across Languages, Maths & Sciences, and Humanities, and allows students to immediately start learning across Quizlet's revision activities including ready-made flashcards, quizzes and games.

Nearly half of all GCSE-age students currently use Quizlet to support them in their studies, by helping them to learn, revise and test themselves on a plethora of topics. Recognising the great importance GCSE results have on students' futures and the responsibility borne by their teachers, the US-founded platform has created this free, curriculum-aligned content to help UK educators and their students successfully reach their learning goals.

UK teachers can customise all verified GCSE content for use in their classes, quiz their students, and track the progress of students within their class. Students and particularly those in Years 10 and 11 preparing for their GCSEs are able to benefit from Quizlet’s adaptive revision activities, which provide guidance and feedback during the study experience to keep them motivated and learning. Quizlet is available on both mobile and desktop devices, which easily allows teachers and students to prepare for classes in advance and revise key concepts at the end of each unit. Ultimately, the GCSE Resource Centre will help students using Quizlet to properly prepare for key topics aligned to their specific exam board ahead of all tests, mocks and actual exams.

Rahim Hirji, UK Country Manager for Quizlet, comments:

“It’s clear to us that teachers want verified, ready-made content that is curriculum-aligned and supports their lessons. With the GCSE Resource Centre, we have brought together online resources from publishers and education professionals to make teachers' lives easier, so whether they are teaching in a blended, remote or traditional way, they know they can rely on Quizlet to support them."

“The disruption to education caused by the pandemic has put a huge emphasis on the importance of online learning platforms, which have provided flexible support for students of all ages. We believe that the GCSE Resource Centre will bolster the studies of young people across the country at a particularly crucial stage of their education.”

Lucy Bunn, a secondary teacher at Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School, comments:

“Quizlet has always been a trusted tool to support us as teachers as we look at engaging our students with great material. This amazing GCSE resource is very timely as we return back to teaching after months away from the classroom and we all feel well-supported, whatever subject we are teaching.”

With over 50 million monthly active users across 130 countries, learning from over 450 million user-generated study sets, Quizlet opened its London office and first international hub in January 2020. The launch of Quizlet’s free and verified GCSE Resource Centre is the latest statement by the San Francisco-based company in its belief that the UK is key to strengthening its global position, as it aims to deliver on a commitment to provide personalised learning tools to students and teachers around the world.

Latest Education News

Further Education News

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

FE News publish exclusive peer to peer thought leadership articles from our feature writers, as well as user generated content across our network of over 3000 Newsrooms, offering multiple sources of the latest education news across the Education and Employability sectors.

FE News also broadcast live events, podcasts with leading experts and thought leaders, webinars, video interviews and Further Education news bulletins so you receive the latest developments in Skills News and across the Apprenticeship, Further Education and Employability sectors.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
