The Copyright Licensing Agency’s Education Platform offers a way to make electronic copies from books for use on the VLE or to email to students. Publishers have supplied high-quality versions of popular textbooks to the platform, allowing you to unlock the books your college owns and then access digital versions of the books, make copies, and share with students. The platform is here. Another resource does the same for newspapers: the Newspapers Archive holds newspaper articles from all the major national titles, as well as many regional papers. Teachers at colleges are eligible to set up an account, search the database going back to 2006, and access relevant clippings to share with students. This can help to support research and comprehension activities, and can be paired with activity suggestions from the CLA
Computing Hubs: The new network of 34 local computing hubs, each supported by the National Centre for Computing Education, offers support to schools and colleges to improve the teaching of computing and computer science. This includes the free Isaac Computer Science programme, which offers online training and resources for A level teachers and students. Colleges in priority areas (most of the country with the exception of large cities; the list is here) can access further support free from a subject expert. Although the major part of the programme offer is based around GCSE, it is worth getting in touch with your local hub to see whether they do have support to offer that is relevant to 16-18 education. More information is here.

Oxbridge Academy is offering a discount for its online study tools to help students prepare for University entrance exams. The discounted offer is available until the end of April, more information is available here.
