Total Project Integration donations to support Online Learning during COVID-19

“When schools stop, learning doesn’t.”- Walton Charity
At Total Project Integration we believe it is important to support the local community, particularly in trying times such as COVID.
As part of the Walton Charity’s ‘COVID-19 Appeal Fund’ Total Project Integration donated £5,000 to provide online learning access to the students at Three Rivers Academy, which was matched by the charity. The donation to Three Rivers Academy provided access for their Sixth Form Students to a pilot subscription of e-learning platform Up Learn.
Up Learn is an all-in-one online education platform that provides students with everything they need to achieve top grades at A-Level, regardless of their starting point. Their content, including video lessons, interactive quizzes and exam practice papers, is developed by world-class educators using applied cognitive science. Their artificial intelligence personalises the learning experience by identifying and focusing on students’ weak spots. In the last two years, 97% of Up Learn’s students who completed a course achieved A*/A grades. For more information visit www.uplearn.co.uk .
At Christmas, using the monies from our Staff Christmas Party Fund, we made a further donation via the Walton Charity ‘Computer for Kids’ appeal to another local school, Bell Farm Primary. Through our donation, Total Project Integration were able to provide Bell Farm Primary with 30 new laptops and data packages. The ‘Computer for Kids’ appeal aims to provide computers to local children, who would not otherwise have access to these facilities at home, so that “when schools stop, learning doesn’t”.
Jackie Lodge, Chief Executive of Walton Charity, commented “The pandemic has thrown up lots of challenges for young people, in particular school closures and the sudden switch to online learning. Without access to a computer at home, many children risk falling behind. We are very grateful to Total Project Integration who understood the urgency of the situation and stepped in to help us get more computers to local schools, enabling young people to continue learning.”

We wish all the students the best of luck during the pandemic and hope our donations provide them with support they need now and in the future of hybrid learning.
