Edtech platform Atom Learning doubles headcount as business expands internationally

Atom Learning, the edtech platform that uses AI to transform educational outcomes, today announces its international expansion into Asia, Africa and the Middle East. It’s award-winning online learning platform – Atom Prime – is now used by schools in Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Nigeria and Abu Dhabi.

Boasting 50 per cent growth month-on-month, Atom Learning has doubled in headcount in the last two months and announced a number of significant new positions. They will drive the development of its innovative learning platform which combines high-quality content, designed and produced by teachers, with sophisticated technology to keep students on their individual, optimal learning paths. 

Atom Prime launched just six months ago and in October entered the UK State sector, following a successful trial in private schools, with over 200 Preparatory Schools now using the platform.

Atom Learning was founded by Jake O’Keeffe and Alex Hatvanyin 2018, having become frustrated by the inequality in education provision in the UK and globally. They see huge potential for technology to reduce the gap in attainment between the most and least privileged.

Atom Prime reduces teacher workload, supports teachers in managing mixed ability classes, ensures non-subject experts can run productive lessons and improves dialogue between parents and teachers. Atom Prime integrates with Atom Nucleus, part of the Atom Learning suite of learning products, an affordable alternative to a private tutor to which parents can optionally subscribe. 

Named one of the UK’s best and most exciting new businesses by Startups magazine in 2019, Atom Learning was this month shortlisted for AI Business of the Year at the National Business Awards, the winner of which will be announced in November.

Jake O’Keeffe, co-founder of Atom Learning, comments:

“We have seen phenomenal growth since launching Atom Prime in May, doubling headcount in just two months and now expanding internationally. This demonstrates a clear appetite from schools and parents for innovative solutions to improving access to high-quality education. 

We firmly believe in the power of technology to enhance educational outcomes and reduce the gap in attainment between the most and least privileged, and that is why we continue to invest in the growth of the business, to constantly improve the platform and to reach greater numbers of students across the UK and overseas.”
