We’ve given ActiveLearn a facelift!

From 2 June, you’ll have a shiny new login page and a fabulous new home page. The home page, with easy to use buttons, work a bit like the apps on your phone. It will make accessing your resources, assessment, planning and allocating so much whizzier!

We’ve consulted with customers about what they want and tested it with them to make sure it does what they want it to, so we hope you will like it too.

What’s new?

  • Clean, uncluttered interface with quick links to you resources and other areas of the site you need to use most often such as Admin and Allocations.
  • Top tips for using your resources and suggestions for other resources that might be of interest to you.
  • A new area to access the latest news. Make sure you check here regularly to keep abreast of any offers and service improvements.
  • A new shopping facility that allows you to buy printed resources (books, workbooks, assessment guides, test packs and so on) directly via ActiveLearn Primary.

Take a look at our 2 minute walk through so you are all set to go after half term.

Get 15% off our new titles!

26.04.16_BCjulien_ctaTo celebrate the Penguins of Madagascar, King Julien, DreamWorks Dragons, Thunderbirds and Wallace and Gromit joining the Bug Club gang, we’re offering 15% off printed copies of all of these new titles until 30th July 2016 with discount code 15BCLUB.

There are 13 new Year 2 titles and ordering is easy as we’ve put three special online baskets together to help you:

The singles basket contains single copies of all 13 new titles and the six packs basket contains 6-packs. Go for these baskets if you want to pick and mix from the new titles rather than buy them all. Once you’ve decided the quantity of each title you want, simply amend or delete the titles in these baskets as required, add discount code 15BCLUB in the promotional code box and we’ll do the rest.

The top-up basket contains two ready-made packs of all the new print titles – one pack contains single copies of all 13 titles and the other contains 6-packs of all 13 titles. Go for one of the packs in this basket (simply remove the other) if you want ALL of the new titles! Again, remember to add discount code 15BCLUB in the promotional code box.
