EdPlace empowers parents in their children’s education by providing adaptive learning resources in English, maths and science from year 1 (5 years old) to year 11 (GCSE/16 years old). Backed by Downing Ventures and experienced angels including ex founders from the likes of LoveFilm, we’re aiming to capture the fragmented tuition market and become the leading parent education brand and largest qualified online tutor company in the UK.
A DfE report states that “it is [parental] support of learning within the home environment that makes the maximum difference to achievement”. However we’ve found that parents lack the resources and confidence to help sufficiently with their child’s learning. EdPlace is designed to solve this problem by empowering parents to give their child the best possible education.
EdPlace was founded in December 2010. In January 2011 the Company bought a printable worksheet website and used its content and customers to help build and subsequently launch EdPlace.com, our parent focused service.
