Laura Kirsop

I’m an independent consultant specialising in digital product strategy for the education sector. I’ve worked with organisations such as Department for Education, King’s College London, FourthRev, Raspberry Pi Foundation, and Nord Anglia Education.

I’m studying Sociology of Education MA at the Institute of Education and founded and run EdTech Circle, a community for product managers working in education.

Before consulting, I was a senior leader in education charities and start-ups for ten years, holding positions such as, Head of Product Management at the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Director of Product at FutureLearn, and Head of Code Club.

Prior to this, I spent several years as a primary school teacher in London schools and specialised in Computing and creative, cross-curricular learning. I also worked as a play and youth worker in various settings, from inner-city adventure playgrounds to holiday clubs.
