Episode 1: Who we are and what we do October 12, 2021

In this our first episode, host Amos Madra speaks to company Directors & Co-Founders Matthew Hodgkinson and Stephen Hackney about the Changing Education Group. They discuss the company’s early days to the present day and the vast array of services on offer including our Connect software. Each week we will look to dissect and critically analyse the good, the bad, and the ugly aspects of careers and work-related learning provision.
