GCSEPods orientation was arranged by the British Council on 14 October 2017. The purpose of this tutorial workshop was to introduce the features and demonstrate the usage of GCSEPods to teachers and students in order to enable them to maximise utilisation of this valuable study tool. The workshop engaged more than 90 teachers and students from many PSGN schools. The Partner Schools Global Network (PSGN) is the community of schools that offer a UK curriculum leading to exams such as the O level, IGCSE and A level, administered in cooperation with the British Council. These schools are located in South Asia, the Middle East, North and sub-Saharan Africa, in Cyprus, Colombia and beyond. 

Teachers and students participating from PSGN schools were well introduced with this unique study tool which would surely support their study and enrich their knowledge base. Participants have positively addressed the presentation and demonstration of live Podcasts in the tutorial and appreciated such initiative taken by the British Council.
