About us

After the introduction of the Progress and Attainment 8 KS4 performance measures, lots of schools and teachers have voiced concerns about a narrowing curriculum, increasing workload, and finding the right qualifications for their learners.

We’re passionate about developing high-quality vocational courses, and believe that online study can provide an engaging learning journey for many different types of learner.
