Our Past Educational Successes

Invicta Summer Academy -  Q3 2020

Throughout the summer of 2020, we delivered over 1.2 million minutes of learning to the children of the United Kingdom. When developing Invicta Academy, we looked at successful models of online learning being delivered by schools across the UK and innovated on best practice to produce a teaching model that can be used at scale. 

According to research by UCL, only 6% of state schools used remote learning effectively during the lockdown. There were many limiting factors which meant schools were unable to offer remote learning more widely - this included safeguarding, technical knowledge, technical support, teacher confidence and access to devices, amongst others. 

 

During our 1.2 million minutes of teaching this summer, our team have overcome the majority of these issues. It took a team of volunteer Specialist Leaders of Education, Teachers, Barristers and Digital Infrastructure experts working full time to resolve these issues.

This learning has been hard-won at the 'digital chalkface' and we want to use it support schools across the UK to meet the requirements in the 'Guidance for full opening: schools Section 5: Contingency planning for outbreaks' 

In our view, it is essential that class teachers are the ones delivering the education to their pupils - after all, they know them best and will be able to pitch the learning appropriately for children to best make progress.

WHAT TEACHERS SAY

Q1 2021 - INVICTA STORIES

PARENT ONE

The live interaction has kept my child engaged and interested. The format used - explaining with the use of examples  and getting children to answers then going through the answers together really helps things sink in.

PARENT TWO

My child enjoyed the lessons and found she could keep up (a challenge for her - she has dyslexia). this gave her a confidence boost . 

PARENT THREE

Confidence and structure. Before the academy, she had started to show signs of anxiety. Her school gave uninspiring (learning) and there weren't any Zoom lessons or live contact. Invicta has been able to fill some gaps in her education and feels more confident.
