How do you improve your elevator pitch if you work in an obscure education niche…?


help people do stuff betterIn my field, one of the things that we’re crap at is explaining to people in plain English what it is that we actually do. Not only is that ironic, but we tend to undermine our actual work with longwinded explanations that turn us into hypocrites.

Here’s my solution.

If you work in foundation education, or more specifically literacy and numeracy the job is to teach better, improve learning, and help people do stuff better.

How we actually do this gets a bit more technical. But helping people do stuff better… that’s what the job is.
