Jason Elsom

FED Council Member: Jason Elsom’s early career centred around internet innovation – leading some of the most progressive early ‘dotcoms’ – before turning his heart to education, becoming a teacher, Head of Faculty in Secondary Schools, Senior Leader in Further Education, and Education Consultant.

Jason has acted as a critical friend to many educational institutions and some of the world’s largest companies in their educational engagement strategies.  Within the education sector, Jason is best known for leading a global cultural exchange programme which supported over 200,000 children from over 3,000 classrooms across the Globe and founding Pop-Up College, an innovative adult learning initiative, which connects educational providers with organisations such as Costa Coffee and Starbucks to provide adult learning venues outside of their normal trading day.

Cambridge-educated, Jason undertook an Honours Degree in Economics, Masters in Retail Management, Postgraduate Certificate in Education, and most recently Masters in Education, focusing on Educational Leadership and School Improvement.

Jason now leads educational equality charity Speakers for Schools as CEO. Speakers for Schools was founded in 2010 by ITV’s Political Editor Robert Peston, and supported by the Law Family Charitable Foundation, with a mission to level the playing field for young people. It aims to end educational inequality by giving access to the same networks as the top fee-paying schools in the UK through inspirational talks and work placements.
