Plans for new education-related businesses in West Norfolk
A businessman has plans to roll out a new range of businesses and initiatives in West Norfolk aimed at establishing education centres and creating jobs.
The plans include consultancy services, a Lynn town centre base offering dedicated marketing solutions and free education centres offering e-learning to all ages and to those who are unable to afford private tuition, such as the homeless.
Behind the initiatives expected to be set up over the next six months is Matt Stringer, who lives at Snettisham.
He has worked for the past three years as managing director of SAM Learning, which provides e-learning solutions to schools globally, but closer to home these include KES in Lynn, and several schools in Norwich.
He said: "I have decided after rapidly growing SAM Learning that I want a new challenge in my career so I have decided to open a range of new education support businesses.
"The launch of my new businesses will lead to job opportunities and new offices and premises in Lynn."
The first of the services he plans will involve the provision of consultancy to organisations within the EdTech sector.
This involves helping high-profile, established and new EdTech businesses engage with schools leading to improving their sales and marketing performance in addition to enhancing their revenue and profitability.
During the following month, he aims to launch Matt Stringer Marketing. He said: "This will lead to the employment of approximately ten local people in the Lynn and West Norfolk area.
"We will have a Lynn town centre base where we will offer the highest quality marketing solutions dedicated to EdTech business.Services will include digital marketing, social media marketing, e-shot marketing, postal mailing, website design and much more."
He intends to launch his Education 4 All a few months later, which is specifically aimed at people living in West Norfolk.
He said: "As part of the Matt Stringer Limited brand, we will have free of charge education centres where people of all ages, from children to adults, can engage in the highest quality e-learning education in a high spec and safe environment.
"This will be available to everyone in West Norfolk, however it is designed to be a facility for those that need it the most, the homeless, the people who cannot afford private tuition, those that require additional help and support.
"I anticipate that this will lead to employment of a further eight to ten people."
