Zoopla has revealed its plan to showcase lesson plans to agents via Zoopla Advantage, its hub for property professionals, in partnership with The Tech She Can Charter.
The twelve lesson plans, linked to the National Curriculum, will work to help assist agents who are teaching their children at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
The lesson plans will cover topics including finance and the environment to health and inclusion, and will aim to help agents through a period of “reduced activity” while schools remain closed.
The plans were originally designed for schools by The Tech She Can Charter, a group of over 160 companies that aims to increase diversity in technology roles in the UK.
Zoopla has previously partnered with the charter in order to launch ten Software Engineering Apprenticeships.
The lesson plans aim to inspire children to pursue a career in technology. They cover a wide variety of topics looking at how technology is changing the worlds of education, finance, the environment and communications, amongst others.
Andy Marshall, Zoopla’s chief commercial officer, said: “There’s no doubt the reduced activity in the housing market and the closure of offices has led to agents having more time at home.
“As a parent of two children of school age I’ve had a steep learning curve about how difficult it is to replace the expert education that a teacher can provide.”
He added: “At Zoopla we want to support our agent partners through this difficult period. We know that there is a lot of uncertainty and this is understandably causing anxiety for many in the industry.
“These lesson plans will we hope make life slightly easier for agents and their families until normality returns to the market.”
