A friend who already worked at Explore Learning recommended I apply – and wow, am I glad he did! I love working with children every day. My proudest moment at Explore was being selected as the Regional Tutor of The Year Winner for the Birmingham region in 2018.
The thing I love most about the role is that it changes every single day! I love it when the children work independently but there’s nothing better for me than seeing your whole learning zone interacting with each other regardless of age, ability or school – they’re having good old-fashioned FUN mixed in with their learning.
I’m currently studying Business Information Technology at university. I graduate in July 2019 and I definitely want to work towards taking my next step with Explore and applying for the graduate position of Assistant Director.
Curriculum Development Manager
Curriculum Development Manager
I graduated in 2005 achieving a BEd Honours degree in Primary Education from Edinburgh University. I was a primary teacher for a couple of years but found that I longed for a career that would give me more one on one time with children – and then I found Explore Learning!
As a tutor I immediately fell in love with this role and felt that I really made a positive impact on the learning of each child I tutored. Over the years I progressed into the roles of Assistant Director and Centre Director, and also gained an SVQ 4 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development.
In 2014, I joined the Education team which really allows me to apply my curriculum and teaching knowledge to developing curriculum materials.
I studied at York University and achieved a 2:1 in History and Politics. After university I taught abroad in Ghana.
I’ve been privileged to be an Assistant Director, Centre Director and Regional Manager before my current role. I loved all of these roles!
I always had an interest in education and working with children. However, I wasn’t sure about the classroom teaching route and wanted to combine my desire to make an impact with the management and training skills I felt I had. Explore offers a great combination of all of these things and the chance to be part of a growing business that has a very strong purpose and mission.
During college and university, I taught at a youth theatre for children aged 4-16 and loved seeing the kids’ confidence bloom and the knock on effect it had on their success. In this time, I also gained experience in a secondary school as a support assistant. After achieving a First Class degree in English and Drama from the University of Sussex, I knew I wanted a job that would enable me to keep helping kids.
I love the relationships I am able to build with families as we help them to achieve their goals – not just helping their child to develop and grow, but also helping parents build their own knowledge of the curriculum and skills to be able to support their child at home too. Explore has a real sense of community, both within individual centres and in the staff ethos as a whole. I felt that on my first day, and four years on it’s still the case!
Nurturing fearless learners
At Explore Learning we have a proven record of enabling children of all abilities to excel academically. But more than that, we are unwavering in our mission to develop a generation of fearless learners. Children who can excel in the classroom, be confident in exams and fearless in school and beyond.
Our support has always gone beyond a quick win with spelling or moving up a set in maths. Tackling such skills is an important first step on the path to success, but to enable children to really thrive in school and beyond, we focus on developing children’s learning attitudes. That’s where fearless comes in.
A fearless learner is someone who is proud to read their story in front of their class, because they know that what they’ve written is wonderful. Someone who is brave and excited to make friends at a new school, because they’re confident to introduce themselves. Someone who’s not afraid to try new things, learning from their mistakes to blossom into an independent thinker.
So if you’re looking for tuition that will not only support your child academically, but change their whole approach to learning and allow them to learn with a smile, come to Explore.
