Tom is the Founder and CEO of Third Space Learning, whose mission is to use technology to make it as simple as possible for every child to access specialist one-to-one support to delight and inspire their learning, helping reduce the social performance gap in education.
Third Space’s model rests on radically changing the means of supply of human resource, using technology to source talent globally, making personal support more affordable and accessible for those children with the greatest social and academic need.
The UK department of Education is financing a two-year study of Third Space, having identified them as one of the most innovative examples of technology in the social sector.
Third Space is backed by a number angel investors who have successful track records of building national and international education businesses, and is planning a series-A financing in early 2015.
