Join The Team

In the industry but feel your heart is in university teaching? Been in university teaching but feel that its taking you nowhere? You may be just the person we' re looking for! Read on...

We' re an experienced bunch of academics with a start-up mentality. We' re in a joint mission to disrupt university education - to change the way we help students to learn. We even want to change what they learn, and are primarily focused on helping students learn to learn for themselves. In other words, to future-proof their education.

We believe that every individual we mold would be an active contributor in the knowledge economy. But we go further - taking them into the creative economy of the future.

You' re still with us? Haven't stopped reading this? Something inside you came alive with the thought this is what I've wanted to do all this time?

We' d like to meet you then. We are very choosey, but are open to new ideas on how we might together achieve this vision - and would love to interact with your ideas, whether you think you should join us or not.
