After several months of interviews and waiting, we are thrilled to announce that Opogo will be enrolling in the final cohort of the UCL EDUCATE programme.

To those unaware, EDUCATE is a £4.5 million programme, part-funded until 2020 by the European Regional Development Fund and its partner organisations; UCL Institute of Education, UCL Engineering, BESA, F6S and Nesta.

EDUCATE is a unique UCL IOE-led programme that connects the EdTech community to the world’s best educational research and practice. Its pioneering approach aims to build and develop and grow, creating the very best products and services that are tried and tested, effective and fit for purpose. EDUCATE is a journey – potentially from concept, to viable business product or service – linking educational technologists with researchers, educators, mentors and experts in business and product development.

All of us at Opogo are incredibly excited to be on the programme and can’t wait to start tapping into the wealth of knowledge, expertise and experience that sit within the hallowed walls of the IOE.
