About Us

Giving teachers the real-time data they need to improve every child’s learning outcomes.

Our Mission

Literacy is the key determining factor for a child’s academic success and reaching their full potential. 

We want to improve student outcomes child-by-child in every classroom until all children are equipped with the literacy skills necessary to read, write and communicate their way to better wellbeing.

Our Research

It is clear through our 20+ years in the education field that outstanding teaching and learning cannot take place without accurate measurement and data. 

If teachers are unable to accurately assess, track and monitor student progress throughout the academic year, they will have problems delivering the right interventions at the right times to address gaps in student learning effectively.

Our Commitment

At its core, GoLearn is a purpose-driven company. We are committed to improving the way education is delivered, to enhance equal opportunities and social mobility.

Through its own internal CSR strategy and by working with other corporates, government bodies and non-governmental organisations, GoLearn will work towards ensuring that the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goal of achieving the target of universal primary education is achieved.

Our team of business pioneers, literacy, language and curriculum experts, product and technology development professionals collectively share the vision and values GoLearn sets out to achieve.
