Oxford University Press Partners with Croydon Youth Zone to Tackle Cost-of-Learning Crisis

Oxford University Press (OUP), a leading education publisher, has partnered with the national youth charity OnSide, TikTok sensation Matt Green, and study skills expert Primrose Kitten to champion revision equity and support students in their exam preparations.

The collaboration will take place on Wednesday, February 21 at OnSide’s Legacy Youth Zone in Croydon, with a livestream broadcasted to multiple hubs nationwide. The event, titled “Make It Stick,” aims to empower students with effective revision strategies through an interactive workshop led by renowned influencers, Matt Green and Primrose Kitten. Each participating hub will also receive a donation of Oxford Revise guides to create their own library of revision resources.

This joint effort is inspired by Oxford University Press’ innovative Oxford Revise series and driven by a shared commitment to address the increasing cost of learning crisis. Last year, OnSide highlighted Ofcom data that showed over eight million households were struggling to afford communication services, including broadband, which significantly impacted teenagers’ revision.

The “Make It Stick” event aims to provide impactful tips for effective revision while highlighting OnSide Youth Zones as valuable venues where young people can access the support and technology needed to excel. In addition, OUP is offering a special deal for any school in England that places an order directly from OUP. They will receive 20% off all English Language and Maths Oxford Revise guides, enabling teachers to provide students with the guides they feel will benefit them the most.

Becki Bradshaw, Head of Revision at Oxford Education, expressed her excitement about the collaboration, saying, “The Oxford Revise team is dedicated to ensuring that every student can approach revision with confidence. Recognizing the heightened financial challenges faced by schools and parents, we are actively working to provide students with more equitable access to learning resources.”

Matt Green, one of the influencers leading the event, shared his enthusiasm, stating, “I am mega excited to be hosting an event for Oxford University Press and OnSide alongside the fantastic Primrose Kitten. Every teenager should have equal opportunities to revise effectively, and we hope our event will offer memorable tips and tricks to make revision less overwhelming and set students up for success.”

Clare Kanakides, Head of Network Support at OnSide, added, “We are really excited to collaborate on this exciting project with Oxford University Press and can’t wait to welcome Matt, Primrose and the team to Legacy. Our Youth Zones provide young people with support and opportunities while outside of school, so it’s really important that we can offer them the chance to enhance their studies. This special event will inspire young people while providing a unique opportunity for Youth Zones across the country to come together at the same time.”

The Oxford Revise series leverages cognitive science to help students retain revision information effectively. Developed by subject experts, each Oxford Revise guide follows a clear three-step Knowledge, Retrieval, Practice approach. More information can be found at https://www.oxfordrevise.com/.
