Managing Director & co-founder | Instill Education
Tom is Managing Director (South Africa) and co-founder of Instill Education, a start-up education organisation with a vision to transform teaching and school leadership across the African continent. He has spent nearly a decade in education in a career that spans the classroom, non-profits and now private education. He started out on the Teach First programme teaching languages to high school learners in London, studying Educational Leadership through the Institute of Education, and developing a lifelong passion for education innovation. Following a move to South Africa in 2012, he spent 3 years in the Cape Flats scaling a non-profit that delivered business skills training to micro business owners, and successfully oversaw completion of a randomised controlled trial with the World Bank and London Business School. Having seen the transformative impact of high quality teaching and leadership on both adults and school-age learners, he firmly believes that innovation in this sector can redress increasing socio-economic disparity on the continent.
