UK Based ‘Netflix For Teaching’ Raises Over US$8 Million In Funding
Guide Education, a UK based education-tech company founded by former Headteacher Leon Hady, has raised £6 million (US$8.25 million) to address the increasing shortages of qualified teachers. Guide Education currently works with over 700 schools and claims to have helped train over 15,000 teachers. He said, “Education levels the playing field and as long as we lack quality teachers, our educational system will always be unequal. It’s time for the monopoly to be over, your background should not determine the quality of teacher you can access. 2021 has also started strongly, however, one of the biggest challenges in deploying Edtech has been teacher training.
