Kickstarting the New Year!
Here at Ednology we have “kickstarted” the year with new additions to the team, who combined, offer a wealth of experience and knowledge to their roles. We are committed to helping young people and further helping them transition into the working world. We support growth, which is why we chose to participate in the “Kickstart Scheme” which is a government funded scheme that provides funding to employers like Ednololgy to create jobs for 16-24 year olds.
As a team we aim to help schools with technology, and help them make more informed decisions when it comes to our products. Throughout the year, we hope to showcase the power of technology in education, through traditional business to business avenues as well as through online means, subsequently raising awareness around education and technology and supporting the growth of edtech manufacturers.
