Fareham-based innovators have met with Fareham MP Suella Braverman to showcase a range of new technological solutions aimed at improving education in schools across the UK.
Suella met with the founders of EzyEducation, Peter Jordan and Jacob Poulton, who have developed an online-based learning platform to offer GCSE and A-level students greater support and flexibility for learning outside of the classroom.
The company, based in Fareham, has gone from strength to strength in recent years, now reaching thousands of pupils and assisting teachers in over 500 schools across the country.
Suella has a longstanding interest in education matters at a local and national level, having previously sat on the Commons Education Select Committee and is a current governor at the Michaela Community School, a recently established free school in London.
The meeting served as a boost to the local business, which received the backing of the MP who has been highly active in pushing for improvements to the education system.
Commenting on the visit, Suella said:
“It was great to meet with the founders of EzyEducation and discuss the benefits of using technology to improve education. Not only was it encouraging to hear how innovation is being pioneered here in Fareham, but also to find out how these resources are making a real difference in improving outcomes for students up and down the country.
“If you happen to be a teacher or a student covering anything related to maths, science, economics or business, I would certainly recommend having a look at what EzyEducation can offer.”
