Channel 4 Learning began in 1993 when the ‘Channel 4 Schools’ television service first began broadcasting. In the subsequent 14 years much has changed in the formal education market, but what has remained a constant is Channel 4 Learning's commitment to providing innovative, curriculum–focused products and services to motivate and inspire teachers and learners.
More than 300 hours of programming broadcast on Channel 4 are enhanced by Channel 4 Learning's range of interactive resources on CD-Rom, DVD, online and other digital platforms.
Our flagship service, called Clipbank was launched in October 2007 to secondary schools across the UK. This cross-curricular digital video library has proven very popular in its first year, covering all major subjects with over 3,500 clips. It supports teachers by bringing the latest & most up-to-date video right into the classroom and engages students with a media that they can relate and respond to.
Channel 4 Learning was acquired by Espresso Education in April 2007.
