Mar 24 2021

Today we meet the teachers who explain why they have switched jobs from traditional schools to join future-led online schools amidst the pandemic. Online independent senior school, Minerva’s Virtual Academy, has made several more, new appointments of teachers this term who have each chosen to move away from roles at traditional schools, in favour of teaching pupils remotely.  The rising number of teachers embracing new learning technologies, suggests that the recent period of online learning is impacting the future of education on many different levels.  As well as coming from several state schools across the country, a number of teachers have joined the Academy from top UK private schools including Wycombe Abbey in Buckinghamshire and Bethany Independent Boarding School in Kent, to name a few.  For many teachers, the pandemic has also uncovered gaps in educational success for those children who simply need more time to learn.
