Schools are Struggling with Resources Amid Teacher Strike

Teachers stressed with parents during lockdown

Hundreds of thousands of members of the National Education Union will walk out
over seven days in February and March to escalate their pay row. As many as
23,400 schools could be affected by the decision.

There are no guarantees that in-person learning will go ahead during the days
teachers go on strike. During this time schools will be struggling with resources to
teach pupils without the assistance of teachers. They might be able to keep some
children in class with reduced staffing, supply teachers or feel they are left with no
choice but to close up altogether.

With CoreSciences, supply teachers can still deliver classes. CoreSciences makes
the home education process much easier for both students and supply teachers. The
platform is easy to use and caters for GCSE science students of all abilities,
including SEND students as well as those that may seek more of a challenge. All
required practicals are performed via hands-on, fully interactive lab simulations with unlimited access, ensuring safe completion of essential experiments with no need for equipment or a lab. This makes CoreSciences a great solution for supply teachers with limited resources.

More and more schools are moving to online teaching and less textbooks are being
used as teachers are adopting online resources. CoreSciences is an online teaching and learning platform that focuses on the required practical
components of the GCSE science curriculum.

A Department for Education spokeswoman said the government was increasing core
funding by £4bn this year and helping schools “get the best value for money from their resources” by recommending deals to manage energy costs and looking at
other ways schools can teach students at half the cost.

As well as assisting teachers and their students, CoreSciences also engages
parents and those that may not have access to practical experiments such as home-
schoolers and other student groups allowing it to be accessible to students across
the UK no matter what financial background they come from.
