What should education software companies be doing to make teachers’ lives easier?

Our fourth guest is Andy Kent, founder and CEO of Angel Solutions, a software company in Liverpool, England. We catch up with Andy at home after visiting his ball-pit-filled offices.

In this episode, you can hear Andy and podcast host, Ross Morrison McGill:

  • share how Andy’s previous experience as a teacher gave him the idea to set up his own software company
  • remember which teachers left the biggest impression on him as a child
  • explain what frustrates him about technology and software used in schools
  • decide which policies Andy would strip away to help teachers in the roles
  • clarify what it means for Angel Solutions to  ‘Go big or go home’ in 2018
  • why Andy’s wife will laugh at his reading habits
  • and hear him recommend which type of unsung teaching hero Andy feels we should interview next.
