“I would highly recommend the bundle of courses for both TY and LCA students. We used the Computer Skills, Career Skills and Driving Skills bundle in 2020-21.
This bundle was useful to us as we have a 1-day work placement per week. We also used them in the classroom in ICT, Business and Life Skills.
The certificates at the end of each module really helped to motivate the students – they had a certificate of achievement to add to their CV. Students could work ahead if they wished in class or at home, and the teacher could assist those who needed it with any tricky modules – self-directed learning is so important for TYs and LCAs.
The programme works on all devices including phones, which is a major bonus. They are student friendly, teacher friendly and great value for money.
The customer service from IACT is exceptional – to be honest I only had to contact them about 4 times all year with small problems which were sorted promptly. We have already signed up for next year for TYs and LCAs, and will again use the bundle in the classroom and if needed, in place of work placement.
IACT also have new and exciting packages so are moving with the needs of schools nationwide.”
