Blueprint Launches Home School Program for Employees

Gauselmann subsidiary Blueprint Gaming has announced that they've launched a homeschool program for their employees and families during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The program will see the company offering children of Blueprint employees school services that are conducted online. Children aged 2-11 will be catered to with the program, and will feature English, Math, Drama, and Yoga. The idea was conceived by HR Officer Ornita Jakubonyte, who is looking to help provide some learning and fun to students while their parents work from home.

"The senior team at Blueprint looked at ways to support our staff with home schooling their kids while working from home," said Jakubonyte. "Alongside our educational providers - Rattle and Roll, Magical Maths and Exciting English - we compiled a programme that includes the core subjects of Maths and English alongside topics that help to build confidence such as drama and ones which help children to learn new skills such as Street Dance.

"The teachers are really engaging and the children are enjoying it very much. I am delighted to say that all of the feedback has been great and that everyone has said that they want to continue. We are doubling our numbers week on week and overall it has proved to be a really positive initiative and a good way to help prepare those children who will return to school in June and to keep those who aren't going back fully occupied with interesting and compelling educational content which is expertly delivered."

Companies around the world have been working to adapt to the challenges of maintaining operations despite widespread lockdown. Indeed, it's good to see a company finding ways to better the education of children while keeping their employees working from home.

That's actually a cool program to see. Good on them for finding a way to keep the kiddos engaged while mom and dad work from home.
