Personalised Performance Learning
At Pearson Online Academy UK Global, our Personalised Performance Learning (PPL) approach gives EVERY student the best chance to flourish. We ensure they receive the one-on-one, tailored attention they deserve, and it starts from the point at which successful applications are made.
Personalising a student’s learning isn’t a one-time process, it’s ongoing with students, Success Coaches, parents, and teachers working together to set, review and adjust goals for the student and determine a timeline for accomplishing these individualised learning goals during the school years.
As students enter the school, they discuss their strengths, skills, and previous school performance with their teachers, Success Coaches and parents to help inform and guide the best teaching and personalised online learning approach.
These conversations along with assessments and other data are used to identify and evaluate a student’s strengths, weaknesses, and talents to help select courses and create a learning plan based on the student’s individual needs. We uncover skills that may need improvement and look for ways to enhance the student’s learning potential - a practice that continues throughout the school, where subject testing is used to identify areas of strength and weakness, measure progress, and establish learning goals. Regular communication schedules and adjustments to learning plans and timetables as well as electives, means teachers, Success Coaches and students can collectively ensure individual needs are met.
20 years of experience
Our PPL approach is over 20 years of experience supporting online schools to engage and flourish.
We’ve specifically created our educational programmes for online learning to ensure that every student is fully engaged in their learning and that our teachers are equipped to bring out the very best in them.
Within the structure of a complete school programme, students use our online learning platform to study from home, joining ‘LiveLesson’ sessions to deepen their understanding with expert teachers and their fellow students across the world. This ‘flipped classroom’ has been proven to increase student engagement and encourage critical thinking, whilst working alongside peers from other countries helps to broaden their understanding of different cultures and build an international network of friends.
Online learning platforms
Pearson’s online learning platforms are currently being used by over 105,000 students to power their learning. Students follow an individual learning pathway, working through high quality, interactive, self-paced study materials, with teachers using LiveLesson sessions, office hours, and other contact time to stretch them where possible and offer more support when needed.
The flexibility of self-paced learning combined with the extracurricular activities and a Success Coach helps students stay on track to meet their personal targets and allows them to thrive with their education. By building and managing their own timetables, students receive a personalised experience that gives them control over their learning and fosters independence and self-discipline.
This approach sets our school apart from the rest and ensures each and every one of students is able to achieve their potential.
