Parents urged to get smart
PARENTS of kids struggling to study for their GCSE maths are being encouraged to take part in a new training venture.
The iSmart Skills Training for GCSE Maths Programme has been set up to help parents ensure their children have the support before going into their all important maths exam.
The Macclesfield Academy, on Park Lane, is hosting a parent/tutor event tomorrow, Thursday, April 23, to show parents how the online tool can help them help their kids when it comes to studying.
It’s been developed by Macclesfield company iSmark Skills Training Ltd, based at Silk House on Park Green,
It incorporates an online interactive workbook and lessons, plus a progress chart which is compatible with computers, tablets and mobile phones.
The free event runs from 7pm until 8.30pm followed by individual parent/student consultations until 9.30pm.
iSmart is offering all schools and colleges in Cheshire 12 months free access to the programme for students at risk of under-performing.
