The Senseless resource has been designed to support teachers to explore the issue of racism within Key Stage 3/4 English lessons.  The resource contains a range of Spoken Language and Speaking & Listening exercises that can be assessed as part of pupils' coursework.

The evaluation report shows the impacts that the curriculum mapped sessions had on the grades of pupils in two schools; West Derby School and Parklands High School in Liverpool.  It also illustrates how, at the same time, the software and film impact on young people's attitudes to racism.

The following video provides feedback from English teachers who have used Senseless:-

 

A cost effective approach
Our software packages are developing a strong evidence based that demonstrates that they are effective in raising academic attainment and at the same time changing attitudes in relation to key social issues. Our resources have been shown to be particularly effective in engaging and motivating those young people who are currently failing in these core subjects and can support schools to work with this group and achieve their the Government’s floor standards.
 
“The CPD was in-depth and useful. The group discussion raised various important issues.”
 
Introducing one of our resources into your school can be a very cost effective way of improving your schools performance. In addition we provide customised training programmes for teachers to support them to embed the programme. These have received positive feedback from all the teachers who have attended.
