Event description

Description

What is it?

This meet up will focus on hiring and retaining quality talent within edtech. This extends to key advisors in the wider community, including co-creating with educators and educator leadership.

We welcome anyone with expertise on hiring, plugging digital skills gaps and working with educators in a meaningful way, as well as looking at ensuring diversity for better edtech development and deployment.

We already have a few exciting speakers lined up for this, including Dr Kristen Weatherby on behalf of UCL Knowledge Lab and Educate talking about "How do you connect with & upskill teachers who want to get involved in edtech product development?"

Also joining us will be Kahoot! Co-Founder Jamie Brooker. Jamie is also Founder of We Are Human, and will be talking about creating a great culture. He will share his experiences of scaling that culture as your company grows, in order to retain top talent who are driven by much more than their latest pay check.

Finally Will Bentinck, Head of Careers, Makers Academy will be talking about recruitment, diversity & developers.

Feel free to come along with a two-minute pitch for exciting job roles or co-founder opportunities you may have; if we have time we will include as many as possible. We will be inviting along people interested in bringing their skills to bare in the edtech sector. This event will also mark two years (!) of The Edtech Podcast and act as the official launch of The Edtech Podcast Festival, which takes place in September 2018.
