The 'Netflix' of education software launched by The Access Group

One of the UK’s leading education software providers, The Access Group has launched Education Demand, bringing award-winning video content and digital learning tools to schools across the country.

Described as the ‘Netflix’ of education, the video content and assessments available via the platform have been developed to engage learners, improve confidence and accelerate progress.

Education Demand users benefit from access to GCSEPod, a learning and revision tool that’s proven to help users achieve one grade higher on average than non-users. Covering 28 GCSE/ IGCSE subjects, the GCSEPod content and assessments are accessible both in the classroom and at home, providing learners more flexibility and freedom when it comes to managing their revision.

The GCSE Resits bundle for Maths and English Language offers access to 12 modules per subject, with each of these modules containing 3-5 lessons covering key elements of the topic. These lessons are delivered using a mixture of video, assessment, and workbook-based tasks. Nearly 30,000 subscribers used this package in 2021.

Commenting on the launch Simon Baines, Managing Director, Access Education said:
School pupils working at computers
“Education Demand has been designed to bring together three key elements - content, assessments and data and we’re hugely excited to be launching the product to schools across the UK. We know the past few years have been incredibly challenging for schools and our software has proven to reduce teacher workload, easily integrating with SSO, Microsoft Teams and Google Classroom, enabling teachers to focus on the job in hand - teaching.”

The Education Demand tool has already been extensively trialled and is already having a positive impact on schools, as Mairi Godley, Principal Teacher Pupil Support, St Margaret’s Academy said:

"Our students have thrived using Education Demand, it’s extremely engaging. Used in school or at home, students can practise their key skills to better prepare themselves for assessments. This way of learning is the future, and we highly recommend it."

Schools using Education Demand can also access detailed reporting, allowing teachers to pin-point knowledge gaps and identify areas of low confidence, providing the data needed to develop personalised intervention plans.
