In January 2021 e-sgol were commissioned by Welsh Government to run a project to provide on-line sessions after school, to support pupils across Wales in order to enrich their knowledge, following the lockdown periods, when they were receiving their education on-line during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The project was named Carlam Cymru and ran in March 2021.
9 subjects were offered at GCSE level, 8 at AS level, and 10 at A level.
The subjects were offered through the medium of Welsh and English.
48 teachers from across Wales participated in the project
In total, 176 sessions were ran over a four week period
Almost 2900 pupils either followed the sessions live, or watched the recordings
Here are some of their comments:
“there were structured steps for each session”
“the teacher reinforced work that I had done”
“it was good to have somebody going through key aspects in a way that was appropriate to the exam board”
“it was good to have the resources to look back on if I was still uncertain”
97% of the pupils agreed or strongly agreed that the sessions were useful for their needs
100% of pupils agreed or strongly agreed that the content/resources were well organised and easy to follow
100% of pupils agreed or strongly agreed that the presentations were clear and effective
