Benefits of online learning for Students

Some of the reasons online learning might be just right for your pupils:

  • We've got street cred – especially with young people who are increasingly invested in social media and gaming

Technology is intrinsic to youth culture. Children are naturally motivated to engage with the online world and respond positively to the enhanced learning experience offered by our classrooms.

  • Interactive and immersive learning games – used in lessons and available on the learning platform – inspire pupils to engage with learning

Online classrooms are compelling learning environments. Removing the distractions of a physical classroom and replacing them with interactive resources increases attention span and focus on educational tasks.

  • Consistent use of the internet/PC for learning fully familiarises pupils with the ICT skills to enable them to find work in our technology-driven world

Learning online ensures ICT is embedded in all areas of education. The ability to use technology with confidence is an essential skill for life and work. Learning online promotes comfort and fluency in the use of ICT.

  • Online learning affords a degree of control and anonymity to pupils with difficulty in facing direct learning or those who have classroom anxieties

The degree of anonymity offered by the online classroom provides comfort and confidence for those suffering education related anxieties.

  • Our web-based provision can be accessed from anywhere there is a computer with a broadband connection, and is ideal for refusers and those with social issues, travel issues, or a requirement for a flexible timetable

School comes to the student wherever they may be offering flexibility and overcoming logistical issues and related costs.

  • Greater parental engagement

Parental involvement in education is enabled via unique platform log-ins. Parents and carers can track attendance, achievement and homework assignments and support their child’s learning.

  • Aspirations often raised by a completely new start, with new teachers and collaboration with new peers

Its just more fun!


Feel the freedom!

Apricot Online offers a go-anywhere solution to alternative learning provision. We bring school to the pupil wherever there is a computer and a broadband connection. And a growing number of clients throughout the UK are taking a byte of what we have to offer: live, interactive online education delivered by qualified teachers.

Career evolution

Apricot offers short courses in independent careers advice. Apricot promotes the discovery of the self in helping students determine appropriate career paths. Work related learning is essential for many young people at risk. Learning how to cooperate with others and recognise authority in the work place is just as important as workplace skills.

Learn from home

It's never easy to be isolated. Apricot lends a hand by linking with other students across the country from the comfort of your students' own home or hospital bed. Pupils with a diversity of needs ranging from physical or mental health problems, SEN, social difficulties, behaviour issues or simply requiring a little extra support to re-engage with learning are all progressing with Apricot’s support and innovative online education techniques.

Just imagine...

Let our technology lead the way to great ideas for all your students. Re-engagement is our strength and exciting new ways of thinking and learning is our passion. Our students routinely make improvements not only in academic performance, but also in their confidence, motivation, punctuality, and ability to settle into lessons.
