Wishing you the best for a happy 2023. May this new year bring much inspiration to us all for reimagining education.
2022 was an exciting year for Progressive Education founder, Jo Symes. She was lucky enough to be accepted onto the School for Social Entrepreneurs start-up programme. This year-long training and mentor programme gave her the support to establish Progressive Education as a social enterprise. The photo below shows Jo at her graduation ceremony a few weeks ago!
Just this week Progressive Education was awarded the ‘Certified Social Enterprise’ badge by Social Enterprise UK.
Other successes over the past year include improvements to the website. Thanks to the team at Thinking Fox, ProgressiveEducation.org has the following new features:
The site now has the functionality for you to add your own listings to the directory, including jobs, events and progressive schools/learning communities.
The directory was initially a UK-wide initiative, but it can now accept worldwide jobs, events and schools/learning communities.
In order to help make the work of Progressive Education sustainable, gratefully received donations can now be made on our website.
You can now subscribe to the monthly Progressive Education Bulletin at https://progressiveeducation.substack.com/.
Looking to the future, Jo hopes to introduce some courses. And watch this space for further website developments as the directory becomes more sophisticated over time.
Finally, thank you to everyone in the Progressive Education Group for continuing to inspire, question, share and support. Together we can reimagine education!
