  • Animations, documentaries and audio recordings enhance language presentation and practice, and cross-curricular lessons.
  • The course that grows with students and provides a bridge to Secondary with a more teenage-focused design, topics and learning strategies.

  • Natural integration of exam
    • Preparing for Pre A1 Starters, A1 Movers, A2 Flyers, A2 Key for Schools, B1 Preliminary for Schools? Take the stress out of international exams with embedded exams preparation and practice in clearly signposted sections.
    • Power Up assessment tools
      Through a unique partnership between Cambridge Assessment and Cambridge University Press, Power Up is the first programme to naturally integrate exam preparation and formative assessment in a fun and effective English course.
    • Exam preparation
      First, the exam tasks are broken down in the Pupil’s Book into discrete micro skills.

      Then, the exam tasks are practised in full in the Activity Book.

      Finally, the full exam papers are practiced with tests available in the Test Generator.

      Test Generator contains customizable Unit Tests and End of Term Tests at different levels as well as Cambridge Young Learners suite, A2 Key and B1 Preliminary for Schools practice tests.
    • Formative assessment
      Formative assessment embedded in Missions completes the picture of students’ progress in a way that exam papers cannot. Power Up takes a 360-degree view of learning by looking at language and life competencies which are surfaced through multi-stage collaborative tasks that run through the unit and culminate with a classroom project at the end of the unit.
  • Life competencies
    • Research and methodology
      The Power Up approach provides both general English and comprehensive preparation for Cambridge English Qualifications, jointly published with Cambridge Assessment English. Student-centred learning is a core part of the course, with ongoing unit tasks giving ample opportunity for collaborative learning.
    • The Missions
      Each unit is structured around a ‘Mission’ which helps learners to set objectives at the beginning and understand their end goal and learning outcomes. The Missions are based on real-world contexts with a focus on real English. They give learners the opportunity to build up a portfolio of their work as evidence of their learning and help them to reflect and evaluate their own learning even at a young age. As part of this approach, there are frequent opportunities for learners to reflect on what they have learnt and help them plan for the next stage of learning, with practical tips on how teachers can help learners to do this.
    • The Cambridge Framework for Life Competencies
      Power Up develops life competencies, such as critical thinking, collaboration and communication, social and emotional skills, as well as language. It is among the first generation of courses to integrate the Cambridge Framework for Life Competencies. The Framework is an ongoing research initiative into how thinking and learning skills are developed over different life stages.

      Each unit of Power Up is mapped to a component within the Cambridge Framework for Life Competencies to ensure a wide range of skills are covered. These include collaboration and communication - present in Missions, understanding and managing one's emotions - present in Literature pages, and a whole range of other skills.
    • Cross-curricular learning
      In Power Up the non-language content such as natural and social sciences, technology, arts and history is developed through the second language and the second language is developed through the non-language content.

      Research on second language acquisition has shown that exposure to naturally occurring language is necessary to achieve a good level of competence in the language. Learners need to have access to spontaneous speech in an interactive context and the cross-curricular lessons in Power Up provide learners with this access. Watch an example documentary below.
  • Confident in learning. Confidence for life
    • Confident learners
      Through focused learning strategy tips, and self-assessment in every unit, young learners can see how much they have learnt. They can use this knowledge and strategies to take ownership of their learning and tackle exams without fear.
    • Confidence for life
      Collaborative projects and focus on social and emotional competencies develop young learners to become confident and better prepared to face life challenges.
