FLOW enabling students to benefit from Virtual Learning Platform

ANGUILLA—Students in Anguilla and across the Caribbean can benefit from the Flow Study programme free of charge, from now to June 15. The Cable and Wireless Charitable Foundation (CWCF) in partnership with Flow and One on One Educational Services Limited joined forces to provide access to the comprehensive virtual education platform, which offers a wide array of educational content enabling students to continue their studies at home during the COVID-19 crisis. Over 130,000 kindergarten, primary and secondary school students are expected to benefit.

  The programme is available to all students regardless of their network operator.  Inge Smidts, CEO of C&W Communications, operator of the Flow brand, and Chairperson of the CWCF, said, “During these times of crisis we must join forces to ensure that our children, families and communities are supported. Given that parents are now faced with the reality of home-schooling their kids, we wanted to find a way to support them despite which network they subscribe to. Our primary concern is to ensure that students across the region continue to have access to the education they deserve and that there is minimal disruption to their learning.”

  The programme includes over 500 video lessons, exam style questions and answers, a digital encyclopaedia, virtual science labs and more.  CEO of One on One, Ricardo Allen, commented on the partnership with the CWCF and Flow stating, “Education is a right and not a privilege. This is an important and strategic partnership for One on One and we are happy that the CWCF has stepped up once again to provide the funds needed to ensure that our students can continue to have access to their education. This is a platform developed by some of the best Caribbean teachers for Caribbean nationals.”
