Barton Peveril Sixth Form College is proud to announce that it has been selected as the United Kingdom’s first ‘Gemini AI Academy’. This prestigious designation recognises the college’s commitment to innovation and educational excellence. This groundbreaking partnership between Barton Peveril, C-learning (Google for Education’s largest partner in the UK) and Google is the first of its kind. 

The Gemini AI Academy is a collaboration between C-Learning and select educational establishments worldwide. It provides students with access to cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) technology and resources. Barton Peveril students will have the opportunity to learn about AI, use AI tools, and develop their AI skills.

Rob Temple, Principal of Barton Peveril says:

“We are extremely excited to be the UK’s first ‘Gemini AI Academy.

The human teacher remains absolutely vital in inspiring and supporting a student, but we know AI will impact on the types of jobs that will be available to students in the future and the kind of skills students should be developing as they progress through the College. This agreement puts us in a uniquely strong position to utilise the technology and continue to provide the best possible educational experience for young people.

Barton Peveril staff will have access to a range of AI tools and resources, which will help staff to create content in new ways, supporting more personalised learning experiences. Barton Peveril staff will receive training from Google for Education on how to use AI in the classroom.

Chris Loveday, Vice Principal at Barton Peveril adds:

We believe that AI has the potential to transform education. AI can help students learn more effectively, efficiently, and engagingly. We are excited to be using AI to create a more personalised and effective learning experience for our students.

Dr Jamie Smith, Executive Chairman of C-Learning says:

We’re thrilled to be supporting Barton Peveril Sixth Form College with their pioneering work with the Google Gemini AI platform. We look forward to sharing more about the impact of this initiative soon.
