Q: What is the Education Platform?
The Education Platform is an online service that gives teaching staff the ability to make copies and share up to 5% of a book their school owns.
The Platform has been developed by the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) and is available to all UK schools that are covered by the CLA Education Licence and there is no additional cost to schools.
With several leading and specialist educational publishers having supplied high-quality copies of their books in digital form, there are 1,000s of popular books available for teachers to unlock and use.
By signing-up to use the Platform, schools can give their teaching staff the flexibility to work smarter and save time on planning, preparing and delivering lessons that are more accessible for students.
