The E-Learning Service

The E-Learning Service offers an alternative method of delivering education to children out of lessons or main-stream school using technology.

In its 13 years of operation, it has provided online education to several thousand pupils who have reintegrated back into school or continued with entries for GCSE and other exams with the Service.

Whilst primarily Norfolk based, it already works with schools and academies in Suffolk, Kent and Cambridgeshire and is open to extending provision to education establishments across the UK.  The E-Learning Service also offers its services to home educating parents.

Students of all key-stages can select subjects to study and lessons are individually prepared for them by e-teachers. Lessons are accessed on-line and can be done by pupils on any day of the week and at any time of the day.

A time-tabled one-hour weekly webinar tutorial is available to students in each of their subjects giving them an opportunity to talk to or IM their teacher and to get direct help with any work issues they may be having.  In addition, e-teachers can be contacted directly for help via the secure online email.

Work is usually done by the pupil at home but can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection, including those at school, college, an inclusion unit, education centre or PRU.
