12 Feb Fusion Fostering Teams Up With Good2Learn
At Fusion Fostering we’re all about learning. From our foster carers to the young people they look after, regardless of age or level of ability, there’s always room to grow.
The beauty of learning is that it can be extremely unique to the individual, as each of us assimilates information differently to others. Not only that, but we also use it in a range of ways on a daily basis, from simple sums and verbal communication, to demonstrating creativity, wisdom and ethical knowledge everywhere we go.
Continual and active learning is extremely important for young people, enabling them to become the best possible adults they can be:
- New ways of thinking improve problem solving abilities
- A growing vocabulary aids overall confidence, develops spoken skills and improves social collaboration
- Being comfortable with managing situations by yourself supports everything from school work and employability, to general life skills and daily situations
- Time management becomes natural as powers of observation and planning are integrated into an individual’s methodology
- Cultural awareness and citizenship encourage young people to respect and celebrate other lifestyles, such as different religions and LGBT+ communities
The above are just a few examples of how learning helps young people to thrive. However, even with an excellent school and clearly designed homework, a child can sometimes fall behind the rest of the class. This is often due to no fault of their own, especially if they’re in a foster care placement. That’s why Fusion Fostering has teamed up with Good2Learn, a brand new digital learning resource that allows children to brush up on key subjects alongside the national curriculum.
The platform takes the form of short video lessons that the young person watches in their space, at their pace. Initially focussing on Key Stage 1 and 2 Maths and English, Good2Learn plans to expand into other topics in due course. In the meantime, the lessons range from angles and fractions, to nouns and grammar, all delivered through clear messages and engaging visual graphics.
Fusion Fostering’s Marketing Director, James Ash, is a member of the C4DI in Hull, which is also the base for Good2Learn’s CEO, Paul Mandalia. The pair got together to chat about how our two companies can unite to support young people across the UK in reaching their full potential.
Working closely with Paul and his team, Fusion Fostering will make Good2Learn available to our foster carers and encourage them to introduce their young people to additional learning. With each lesson being only a couple of minutes long and the corresponding online tests composed of ten short questions, this really is a wonderful and effective way for children to advance their grasp of maths and English, boosting their confidence and learning techniques in the process. Stay tuned for more information on this exciting collaboration.
