Learning Executive

full-time Up Learn London

Our schools are broken. Teachers sacrifice real education for exam preparation, while students are left overworked and disappointed with their results.

At Up Learn we use AI and neuroscience to ensure every student can achieve an A*, regardless of their background. We’re on a mission to help every student fulfil their potential.

Last year, 100% of the students who completed our course in A Level Economics achieved A or A* grades, with some starting from grades as low as Ds and even Us.

We’ve now raised half a million pounds to create our next wave of A Level and GCSE courses, expanding our reach to 2 million new students every year.

We’re looking for the ambitious educators, to create exceptional educational content that will forge the future of your subject and the UK’s education system.
