G Suite for Education 

Newcastle City Learning is using G Suite for Education as their new digital, online learning platform. Learners and tutors will be able to share their learning via Google Classrooms, which is a suite of communication and collaboration tools for learning anywhere, anytime and on any device. It is a streamlined, easy-to-use tool that helps tutors and learners participate in online lessons, manage coursework, distribute assignments, grade and send feedback, and see everything in one place. Learners will be given an account when they enrol and receive training in how to use it effectively. 

Quals Direct

This is our e-portfolio that all learners will be using this academic year. Using the e-portfolio will allow you to submit your work directly to the e-portfolio, to track your progress through your learning goals, to communicate with your tutor and other features. It will also save you having to put together a physical file for assessment and moderation. Your assessment, feedback and internal and external moderation can all take place through Quals Direct.
