Up Learn Paid Internship

London, England, United Kingdom expand job description ↓

Description

Our schools are stuck. Teachers are forced to sacrifice real education for exam preparation, while students are left overworked and disappointed with their results.

At Up Learn we use AI and cognitive science to ensure every student can achieve an A*, regardless of their background. Our mission is to provide the world's most effective learning experience, and in doing so, help every student fulfil their potential.

Last year, 100% of the students who completed our course in A Level Economics achieved A or A* grades, with some starting from grades as low as Ds and even Us.

We’ve now raised half a million pounds to create our next wave of A Level and GCSE courses, expanding our reach to 2 million new students every year.

The Opportunity

You will be joining our world-class content team to help produce Up Learn educational videos. You’ll be given full responsibility for delivering projects that matter. As a Content Developer Intern, you’ll play a crucial role in producing our videos, developing and refining our quizzes, and ensuring the highest level of quality across our courses. We will help you develop all the skills that you need, and you will gain lasting and transferable video production, business and team-working skills and experience. Given the startup nature of the business, you’ll see first-hand the impact your work has.

There is also the opportunity to work on other projects such as marketing and business development in addition to the content related projects.

All internships are paid, and there is an opportunity for all interns to become full-time team members at the end of the internship.
