Discussion - The emotional impact that the new GCSE format might be having on students and Teachers
Stuart Hales on Talk Radio
To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not quite enough time
The Wand Education philosophy is simple; if we can help teachers save time, they can spend more time helping students.
The recent GCSE results in the UK created a debate around the stress that teachers and students are under when it comes to achieving top-level results. Stuart Hales, the CEO of Wand Education, was invited to discuss the emotional impact that the new GCSE format might be having on students and how can teachers and parents can help. Stuart was interviewed by our friends at Talk Radio and was also keen to add how the teachers are feeling the pressure as well.

The Wand Solution
Wand Education is a technology platform that supports primary and secondary school teachers by providing access to a growing marketplace of high-quality online content and learning support materials, automated marking and one-click reporting.
This improves learning in line with curriculum guidelines, engages students in an interactive way and makes their processes more efficient – allowing teachers to win back their evenings and weekends. The platform is purpose-built, whilst being constantly developed and adapted to teachers’ needs.
Teachers can also use the platform’s lesson plan builder to create their own learning resources and share their expertise through the school. For headteachers, reporting tools give the visibility they need to support the teachers, students and prove compliance and progress during Ofsted inspections.
Our GCSE content packages – powered by West Exe School – will be live in September. The teaching resources will come with 1300 new worksheets for Wand users to download and create time-saving lesson plans with automated marking and reporting.
The package will provide an average of 20 activities per lesson with a total combination of over 20,000 activities being readily available for use. 29 secondary school subjects covered will include; Art & Design, Biology, Business Vocational, Child Development, Chemistry, Computing, Citizenship, Dance, Drama Vocational, Economics, English, French, Food Vocational, Geography, History, Health & Social, IT Vocational, Mathematics, Music, Music Vocational, Product Design, Core PE, Physics, Physical Education GCSE Photography, Science, Spanish and Sport Vocational.
