Head of Careers

Glengormley High School, Northern Ireland

Used Xello for 7–12 months

Jan 2021

Its a great resource for children that can work independently, navigate it themselves and get totally immersed in it.

Patricia McKee found Xello:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Helps GCSE level students see the requirements for a particular job they are interested in and apply that information to their Vocational Skills work.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Learning about careers they never knew existed.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    I can post assignments and give feedback, similar to google classroom but its nice to have a careers platform that is ultimately for that purpose/subject only.
  • Not significantly reduces teacher workload
    I still have to produce assignments to follow the prerequisite tasks, to which a lot of the time, a number of students would constantly ask for the meaning/definition of words/phrases etc. for e.g. 'what does enterprising mean?'; 'What does logical mean?' and with pupils working at different speeds I would need to give individual feedback as opposed to general feedback to an entire class had we been working at the same rate and on the same task.

Jo Kitchener

Head of Upper School

Used Xello for 4-6 months

Jan 2021

It's good, but the lesson bit of it needs more training/explaining for it to be used properly in our setting. Teachers prioritise their lessons and so don't have a lot of time to master new software.

Jo Kitchener found Xello:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    It seems to make a difference when pupils have an end goal, they can be quite apathetic until a career is pointed out to them that piques their interest. Then they start to get serious about what they need to do to get there. It definitely helps motivate.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    It helps give them an idea of where to go for courses that interest them, and also highlights careers they may not have considered or even know about beforehand.
  • Not significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    It's a good PHSCCE tool and required very little planning initially.

I think it’s great. We’ve just not had the chance to fully embed it.

Stephen Jackson found Xello:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Not been using long enough to comment, especially with Covid

    This is just an assumption. We’re delivering Xello remotely due to Covid

    Too early to comment. See above

Kim BIngham

Head of Careers

Lagan College, Northern Ireland

Used Xello for Since May/June 2020

Sep 2020

This platform has allowed me to create a bespoke careers programme for all year groups in my school which can be delivered when the class is with me, or virtually. I can see what is being done and report on student progress. Overall, this is the platform I have been waiting for in Careers. However, I have an issue with single sign in for students using c2k wireless in my school. This is making it difficult to get students signed in first time.

Kim BIngham found Xello:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Students are able to use the custom lessons and submit their answers
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Using custom resources and lessons to build knowledge of Careers
  • Slightly improves behaviour or wellbeing
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Ability to upload all lessons so that non-specialist careers teachers are scaffolded in their delivery of careers classes
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    All lessons are easily accessed and simple to deliver. Ease of access to mark etc.

So far the website and its functions are student friendly and very helpful to their future careers

Paul Bamber found Xello:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Students have only just started xello
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Students have a better understanding of jobs available linked to there preference's
  • Slightly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Again only just started xello with the students
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Everything is in one area rather than using multiple websites
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Everything is on the website so teachers dont need to plan certain careers activities
