About Smart Space
Smart Space is simple to use, with engaging content to support educational progression. Schools, Colleges and Home Educators are invited to contact us to discuss how our digital programmes might suit the needs of individuals. We cover a wide ability range, particularly in music, where our tutorials encompass everything from access level to Post 16
Smart Space offers young people something to do that can lift their mood and inspire engagement. It can also be used to target those requiring extra challenge, curriculum enrichment, or support. All content has been created by the Tang Hall SMART team who mark all the work that learners submit, and give feedback.
