Claire Lockyer

Claire now works in EdTech (although not as part of the sales team and she doesn’t earn commission off any sales). Claire is also a qualified teacher (primary, lover of upper KS2, thinks year 5 kids are just the best). Before teaching, Claire worked in investment banking where her role included assessing, testing and implementing new software. Claire’s work experience means she has seen both the business and teacher sides. Claire has experienced being hounded by the EdTech sales bod who calls at 11am (whilst she’s teaching English) and who doesn’t understand why Sunday at 10pm is the time teacher Claire is most likely to actually read an email. Claire’s pet hate is tech firms who insist on telling teachers ‘to just play around with a new system to get to know it’. As Claire points out, new systems are just not top priority when you have to teach all day.
