FAQs

If we were to buy a Go-Givers School Subscription, how many teachers would be able to access your website? Would we have access to all of the resources?

The Premium and Basic School annual subscriptions allow a school to attach as many teachers as you would like in your school.  The Premium School subscription provides access to all of our online resources including over 150 lesson plans and unlimited access to all of the interactive tools in Nifty Gear, enrichment and reference materials, the Curriculum Planner, Assessments, the complete Kids’ Zone and Assembly Plans. The Basic School subscription allows access to 36 lessons plans plus all of our online interactive tools. 

If you need help on adding teachers onto your school subscription please telephone 020 7566 5036 or email support@gogivers.org‚Äč

Can I edit the PPTs and Learning Activities?

Yes, you can. The PPTs and Learning Activities were created so that you can adjust and edit them to suit your own teaching style and cohort of children.

How can I pay?

We accept alternative payment methods at checkout. Our secure payment options include Paypal and credit or debit cards. If you wish to pay via invoice please call 020 7556 5036 or email support@gogivers.org

Is there an option to view lessons in their entirety before I purchase them? 

Each lesson comes with a brief overview on the teachers tab. If you can’t find what you are looking for please ask us, and we will see if we can guide you. You can contact us on support@gogivers.org

My school has purchased a School Subscription so why can’t I access the lessons?

When a school takes out a subscription, the individual who makes the purchase becomes the ‘lead account holder’ of the school’s account. All other teachers in the school need to enter the special code they were given by the lead account holder on registration to attach themselves to their school's subscription. They will then be able to access everything on our website except the lessons. To access the lessons, the school’s lead account holder needs to choose which lessons they wish to add to their school subscription. Lessons can only be added to the school’s subscription via the administrator’s account. Once the lessons have been chosen and unlocked by the administrator, any other teachers in the school who have registered using the school code will be able to access these lessons. If you wish to change the school’s account administrator you can do this by logging in with their email address and password then going to ‘My Account’ and clicking ‘Profile’ – you can then edit the details to change the account administrator.

How is Go-Givers funded?

The project was initially funded by the Cabinet Office but this funding has now ceased. We also receive funding from Pears Foundation which allows us to offer our lessons and activities at a subsidised rate to cover the cost of developing the learning materials, our website and support from the Go-Givers team. We are a not-for-profit organisation so subscriptions help us to develop our website. 

I love Go-Givers and would like to support your work, what can I do? 

It is because of people like you that we are able to make such a difference. Your support is essential to the continuation of the growth of our programmes, and you could make impact on our work. If you are able to offer a donation or support in kind to inspire and empower young people to become engaged and confident global citizens we would be delighted to hear from you. Please email us at support@gogivers.org

I work outside of the United Kingdom, can I still use your resources?

Yes, you can. Our resources appeal to a universal audience. The diverse range of lessons ensures that there is always content relevant to children from different places. 

I am a home educator/education advisor and not attached to a school or organisation, can I still use your resources?

Yes, you can. As we only list UK schools in our database, please select ‘I cannot find my school’ when registering, and enter your details. In the organisation field, please state ‘home educator’ (for example).

We have paid for the Make a Difference Challenge. Do we have to pay again to use your website?

No. All schools taking part in the Make a Difference Challenge will get free access to our interactive tools in Nifty Gear (including the Ballot Box, Decision Making Tool and Children’s Toolkit) for the duration of the project. We will send participating teachers any lessons relevant to their Make a Difference Challenge topic so they will not need to purchase any lessons for use in their project. However, we hope that they will wish to take advantage of all the other new and improved resources on the Go-Givers website, and buy a bundle of 6 lessons, subscribe as an individual or as a school.

Can I add more bundles to my subscription?

Yes, once you have added the 6 bundles of 6 lessons that come with your school subscription, you can then add new bundles at the discounted price of £10. Log into your account and click onto the ‘teachers’ tab’. You can then click on ‘build your own bundle’ or buy a bundle by theme or by year group.

What happens if I move schools?

If you move schools you will still have access to your Go-Givers resources if you have bought bundles or an individual subscription. You can edit your details in ‘My Account’.

Can I select lessons from both Key stages in my bundles?

Yes, you can build your bundle with both key stage 1 and key stage 2 lessons.

Why is my credit/debit card rejected at checkout?

If you are trying to make the payment with a credit/debit card that is registered to a PayPal account, it will reject your card by default as PayPal prefers payments via your PayPal account instead. Log in and pay with your PayPal account or use an alternative card to complete your purchase.

Why do I have to log in?

Paid for resources will only be available to users who have created an account and have logged in. You will have access to your user account including your purchase history. Registering also ensures full data protection for  class lists when entered for our interactive tools.  

What email address should I use to register?

We strongly recommend to register with your school email address, but if that is not possible then you can register with your personal email address if required.

I have forgotten my password, should I just create a new account?

You do not need to create a new account. Go to the log in page and click ‘Forgot Password’. Type in your email address and you can then reset your password. 

Do you offer training?

Yes, we offer several training modules including: Bullying, Valuing Diversity, Controversial Issues, SMSC and British Values. Staff training is available in selected regions of England including Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, London, Kent, Surrey and Yorkshire. If you wish to register your interest, email support@gogivers.org  or call 020 7566 5036.
