About us

Introduction

SchoolsWorld is a brand-new, multimedia platform, providing innovative and informative content for everyone involved with or wanting to be involved in schools. Besides all the content from Teachers TV, there is something for everyone: videos, interactive games, work sheets, fact sheets, information and latest education news. There's also opportunity to get involved in great competitions and daily polls. With our team bringing more than 25 years of experience in education SchoolsWorld is passionate about connecting people to great education daily.

SchoolsWorld is designed for everyone involved with schools:

  • Pupils and students
  • Parents
  • Teachers
  • Schools management, headteachers and Governors
  • Businesses and charities

Risen from the ashes of TeachersTV and set up by the company who ran Teachers TV, Ten Alps plc, SchoolsWorld will bring a much broader array of films, games and information to help improve the learning experience for all.

Our aim is to provide everyone in the UK with access to a huge range of inspiring material and training, which can help them with revision, professional development, parenting or even help businesses get involved with local schools.

SchoolsWorld is currently continually developing and we welcome your ideas on how we can best improve SchoolsWorld to offer you exactly what you want.

TeachersTV

Teachers TV was a website and former free-to-air Distance Education television channel, which provided video and support materials for those who work in education across the UK, including teachers, school leaders, governors, trainers, student teachers and support staff.

Its aims included raising educational standards, saving the workforce time, and boosting professional development. It also provided classroom resources and all content was available to watch or download for free.

Following the dismantling of Teachers TV, Ten Alps plc (the company who ran Teachers TV for the Department for Education), launched SchoolsWorld continuing to allow teachers and educational professionals free access to more than 3,500 original Teachers TV videos, plus a wealth of supporting materials.

Our commitment

SchoolsWorld believes in bringing everybody in the UK access to the very best educational and best practice content available. We want to help improve education for everyone.

As well as catering for Teachers, Pupils and Students, SchoolsWorld want to support parental involvement in the education system and there is a wealth of videos, resources and information to help them deal with important subjects such drugs and alcohol, or just simply navigate the complicated curriculum.

SchoolsWorld looks to encourage businesses to play a key part in the education system with their in-depth knowledge, expertise and experience in such a wide range of subjects, such as financial literacy, science, communication and sport. SchoolsWorld provides the school with free access to many great corporate education resources at the touch of a button. For businesses there is a section designed to actually help them get involved with schools, whether providing mentoring or leadership skills, work experience or employee engagement. There's best practice guidance, as well as hints and tips from many experts in Corporate Social Responsibility plus case studies on businesses that have excelled in delivering bespoke educational programmes into the world of schools.

SchoolsWorld wants to help connect people to great teaching whilst help improve teaching, schools and education at the same time.

The curriculum

SchoolsWorld knows all too well that the curriculum can be a minefield to navigate and with regular changes to the syllabus, it isn't just teachers that have a difficulty keeping up. Parents, pupils and students alike also struggle to know exactly what they are studying, the choices and why. Along with a number of videos and films surrounding all subjects, key stages and age groups within the world of schools we also have a number of easy to access guides that we hope will make deciphering the curriculum that little bit easier.
