I'm interested in social innovation especially those affecting young people. I believe that the best way to do this is through collaboration; bringing as many people along the service design journey as possible. Users, experts and everything in between.

Pedram's 'getting stuff done' manifesto

For the last two years, I've been working in a strategy role researching and designing powerful learning experiences for/with teachers. I'm a founding trustee of a new chairty calledSpark+Mettle. We bill ourselves as an aspirations agency, working with young people from less privileged backgrounds to help them flourish and also find an engaging, fulfilling job. We are working with our pilot cohort as co-creators of the programme. I am also a co-founder of The Skills Lab which will be setting what we believe to be the only education think/do tank based in a school. Here we will bring ideas and people together to test new initiatives in education. Our aim is to create smart, simple and practical tools that facilitate cultural change in education to allow children to develop the skills they need to access wider life opportunities.

Part of the movement for 11 years
