Working in accord with the latest Ofsted recommendations for alternative education.
Live, online education working directly with mainstream schools, PRUs, Hospital Schools, Education Authorities, and more, as part of a blended learning programme to offer quality alternative education to vulnerable students.
Apricot online is a leading provider of live, online education. We are passionate about our work and focused on providing the best possible outcomes for needy students. We teach students aged 8-18 who require alternative or extra provision for short or long periods of time. Our students may be unable to attend school due to illness, exclusion, refusal, or mental health.
We provide a holistic, warm environment, where learners are respected and nurtured. Even at a distance, we want them to feel secure and supported so they can re-engage with the learning process. Some students may be able to join small groups for their lessons through a-la-carte timetables; others may benefit from our personalised One2One tutoring.
We quality assure both teachers and management procedures in line with government recommendations.
ACCESSING ONLINE LEARNING
Students access their teachers and virtual classrooms via the Internet. It's simple to use and available wherever there is a broadband connection. Student and Teacher can speak to each other, IM each other, use the online whiteboard, work together on shared screens, and participate in interactive mulmedia activities.
Our learning platform holds a wealth of educational resources and links that can be used during lessons, for independent learning, or for research. Homework is assigned through the platform and students upload their work directly to their teachers.
