Home education is on the rise according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The number of children being taught at home in NSW alone has ballooned by 65 per cent in four years. We here at Skwirk have certainly noticed an increase in home school access over the past few years, and that got us thinking… We have always had four main users. Schools; teachers; parents; & of course the students. In the past when home educating parents contact us asking which option is best for them, we have pointed them towards the Skwirk parent subscription. However we always felt we could offer more to the home schooling community. After all, when you add up the number of resources (whether books or online), across the number of subjects (Maths, English, Science etc), it is not going to be a cheap process to be educated from home. And that is why we have created our brand new Home Education option on Skwirk. This is a combination of a parent subscription (weekly reporting, multiple subjects, student access), with the added tools from our teacher portal (multiple year groups, lesson assigning, immediate reporting, National Curriculum search functionality, and our lesson editor). So you can essentially use Skwirk as your one stop shop online resource. Of course this option is not just available to Home Educators, but to all parents. If you already a parent subscriber (or your email address is already registered with the site), then contact the Skwirk Team via email or phone and we will switch your accounts. Plus, exclusively for homeschool families, you can get 40% off with the promocode ‘school‘.
