Introducing... Alex Kelly and Unifrog
WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY / PROJECT?
WHY WAS IT SET UP?
We wanted to help young people make better choices about which course or apprenticeship to apply for after leaving school.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST THING YOU HAVE LEARNT ALONG THE WAY?
Vision is nothing without attention to detail.
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO TAKE YOUR COMPANY / PROJECT NEXT?
Right now we make it easier for students to choose which opportunity to apply for, and we also help with the application process. The next step is to help schools track where their students actually end up!
HOW CAN PEOPLE GET INVOLVED?
Hmmm... depends what you're good at and interested in. Come say hi and we can chat it through.
WHY DID YOU JOIN EDSPACE?
It's a great space, with lots of cool people in it!
WHAT CAN YOU TEACH? (ANYTHING YOU ARE SKILLED AT OR PASSIONATE ABOUT)
I visit lots of UK schools, and I've been working in the UK education world for 11 years, so I've got a reasonable grasp on whether a new project might work in schools. The only thing I'm actually trained to teach is English at GCSE and A-level. But I'm retired.
