…okay, I should be clear on what I mean by ‘more impact.’
These are just my thoughts; it’s how I see the world, and have made my own career choices:
- You can have close proximity to your impact for a small number of people
- You can be more distant from your impact for a very, very large number of people
For me, classroom teaching meant I saw the immediate impact of my work, every day, but supporting ~100 pupils day to day left me forever wondering ‘what about the other 5 million?’
That’s why I joined a fledgling start-up team back in 2017, to have more impact for a greater number of pupils.
If you’re like me: you wish you had more time to think, and you wish your work could have a positive impact on the lives of way more pupils, then I have great news: in 2021 we’re hiring for new people to join our Learning Executive and Learning Associate teams!
If you want a sense of what I mean by ‘have a positive impact,’ here are a few recent reviews from our students:
Here you can also watch a short video with Merilin, who received free access to the platform via our scholarship programme. She was predicted C grades in Psychology and Economics, and achieved an A* and an A respectively. And here, a short video with Keir, who went from predicted grades of BBB to achieve A*A*A.
Finally, to share just one number, when I wrote this in 2017, I noted that close to 20,000 students had signed up. That number is now closer to 250,000. That’s what I mean when I talk about impact at scale; and this is really still just the beginning.
Our Learning Executive team is diverse, with knowledge and experience spanning English Literature, Humanities, Law, Philosophy, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Languages, Business, Biochemistry, International Relations, Publishing, Music.
Right now, we’re actively looking for people with a STEM background, and especially for people with a specialism in physics. If you fit that description, we can’t wait to meet you! If you don’t, but know someone who does, please pass this along to them. Throughout the year we’ll continue to hire for people from all backgrounds, so please reach out if you’d like to hear more.
