FREE online platform aiming to reinvent careers education

Help your pupils develop the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to thrive in life after school 

It’s now widely recognised that young people are not being adequately prepared for the world of work as too many fail to see the purpose of education, become disengaged with their learning and do not develop the skills needed in the modern workplace. That’s why we set out on a journey to makes careers education more fun, engaging and meaningful for young people – and to show young people how their learning will be applied in exciting ways in life after school.

So we’re delighted to launch a new and improved version of Panjango – our virtual world of work which gamifies learning, links the curriculum to the real world and equips young people with the skills they need to fulfil their potential.

Panjango, which is free to use, now features 120 occupations and more than 1500 contextualised challenges covering the Key Stage 3 Maths, English and Science curriculum. Our new filtering system allows you to tailor your lessons and present the challenges most relevant to your class.

The resource has already received praise from some prominent people in the careers world. For example, Dr. Deirdre Hughes, former Chair of the National Careers Council England said, “Panjango is pushing the boundaries of career learning. The resource is fun and lively with a strong theoretical base supporting an innovative approach to lifelong career development.”

What makes Panjango different from others careers resources is that it directly links the school curriculum to work-related challenges, helping to give learning context and purpose. The challenges also help to develop the key competences young people will need in the modern world of work – all while enabling them to learn more about possible career paths.

Students who have been inspired to explore careers possibilities at an early stage in their secondary education are typically more motivated and focused in their lessons. Panjango aims inspire and excite students about careers from an earlier age, making them eager to engage in further careers activities as they progress through school.

“Every Classroom in the World should have one of these!” … Faye, Class Teacher – Merton, London – Jan 2017

What is Faye referring to?  A Classroom SoundField system from Connevans.

Will you agree with Faye? There is a simple and free way to hear what Faye heard and find out for yourself.  You can have a free SoundField trial in your school, a trial which gives you and your colleagues the opportunity to try the equipment for a few weeks have the same experience as Faye!

You will find that all the children become engaged immediately, the teacher will never have to raise or strain their voice, everyone (even the children with poorer hearing and attention) will hear perfectly, and the tendency of some children to make noise in the classroom will diminish.

Simply tell us when it is convenient to visit, and we will bring the SoundField system to you and show the relevant teacher how to use it. Set up in the classroom takes just 15 minutes and after that you can use it straight away.

There is more information about our most popular SoundField system, the Swift Digital, on our website here:

The Swift Digital SoundField system is designed by Connevans, the UK’s leading manufacturer of Classroom SoundField systems used all over the UK.

To hear what Faye heard and arrange a free three-week trial simply call or email and leave the rest to us!

As a special trial offer there is a 10% discount on the Swift Digital if you keep it after the trial, you only pay the invoice if you decide to keep the SoundField equipment.

If you would like us to have a look at your school hall or offer free advice regarding simple equipment to help ensure the school is complying with the Equalities Act for visitors who are hard of hearing, we will be pleased to help.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Lessons in financial literacy for students with SEN

Help your SEN students to make sense of money with the Making Sense of Money Set

It is pleasantly surprising when a new topic is added into the curriculum with very few teething problems, such as the introduction of financial literacy to the maths and citizenship curriculum in 2014.

However, there does seem to be a lack of resources that explore and explain finances in a way that students with SEN can easily understand.

Which is why SEN Press has devised the Making Sense of Money Set which contains a wealth of resources about dealing with money in everyday situations, including:

  • Six story books which support the ASDAN CoPE Award. Titles include, “Money In, Money Out”, “Everyday Money”, “What’s it Worth?”, “Cash and Cakes”, “Keeping Money Safe” and “Making Ends Meet”.
  • A CD-ROM providing electronic versions of the above titles, making it ideal for interactive whiteboard presentations and for students who would also benefit from listening to the text.It is also possible to edit and save the text to make your own story, create differentiated texts, and personalise the text with your students’ names to enhance engagement.
  • An extensive range of activity worksheets and interactive activities that encourage reading comprehension. Activities include, Words and Pictures, Picture Search, Keyword Flashcards, Wordsearch, Spot the Difference, How Well Did You Read?, Missing Words, Quizzes, and Drag and Drop.
  • Supporting resources for teachers including page-by-page notes for all the stories and assessment resources (feedback sheets and student record sheets).

The complete set of resources containing two copies of each of the six readers, the complete teacher book, and the CD Rom is available for £139 plus VAT (save 10%).

You can see more details and sample pages from the readers, and details for ordering individual items as well as the full pack on our “Making Sense of Money” web page.

If you have any questions or need more information, please email or call 01582 833205.  We’ll be delighted to hear from you.
