Learning beyond the classroom
Digital learning is shaping our future. It’s opening up education to more people than ever before. With Pearson’s online courses, flexible lesson times, a choice of subjects, and interactive learning resources are only a click away.
What is a Pearson online A level course?
It's exactly that - our full Pearson Edexcel A level course for Spanish, delivered online. Our online A levels provide flexible lesson times, differentiated instruction, high-quality, interactive learning resources, rigorous formative assessments, and the latest generation learning platform.
Imagine being free from the constraints of timetabling, student numbers or finding specialist teachers.
Our online A level courses are:
Each course provides 5 hours of learning per week:
- 1 hour live lesson with our teacher in a small, online class
- 4 hours of self-guided learning using our range of high-quality online resources.
Only the 1-hour “live lesson” needs to be coordinated, and there are multiple time slots available to fit into your students’ timetable.
A sophisticated but easy-to-use learning system allows our teacher to track each student’s progress in real-time and make data-driven decisions regarding next steps.
You’ll receive a detailed weekly update to you on each individual student’s progression.
We just ask you to provide a quiet room for each lesson, with an internet-connected computer and a headset with a microphone for each student, plus a ‘Success Coach’ (which could be a teacher or TA) to ensure that students are in class, and on task, during each lesson.
We partner with you to provide everything that your students need to succeed.
