Melissa McBride, CEO and Co-Founder, notes:
"As an educational leadership team which shares over 48 years of headship and teaching experience at outstanding schools in the UK and abroad, what concerned us most about online education provision was the lack of regulation and quality assurance. Ensuring child safety and protection through our rigorous safeguarding and safer recruitment practices, and through high quality, engaging, learning outcomes for our students are the key drivers for every aspect of our business.
As the future of EdTech shines bright in the COVID era, what is sure to define the industry leaders of tomorrow and give rise to new 'unicorns' in the sector is a shift from purely content focused curriculum platforms to those who imagine a new way to view education, driven by data, evidence and high quality learning outcomes for students.
This is an incredibly exciting time to be an educational leader, leading from the front and defining the course of the EdTech sector as we unlock new opportunities for a generation of future leaders."
This is Education Reimagined.
