A LOCAL company which specialises in boosting pupils’ learning power is expecting a surge in interest following changes to the education system.

Learning Technologies, based in Bucknell, has developed a range of tools, including a new e-book, to help students memorise facts and figures.

Proprietor Phil Chambers, who travels the world hosting “memory championships”, says teachers and pupils will need better study skills due to Michael Gove’s reforms of the current exam system.

He said: “From 2015 assessment of coursework will be abolished, as will modular exams. Children will sit an exam at the end of two years of study, a similar system to the old O-levels.”
