FED Council Member:
David founded SAM Learning, an online learning tool for GCSE and KS3 in 1998. Back then, most people’s response to online learning was to ask, ‘Why is it better than a book?’ Fortunately, David was able to explain that, and SAM Learning is now used in hundreds of English secondary schools. In 2010, David founded Penda Learning, an online Science and Math tool for US schools that was sold in 2019. David recently started a new venture, the National Talent Academy, which coaches proactive students from disadvantaged backgrounds and helps them find work opportunities with prestigious companies that they wouldn’t otherwise get.
