While studying his teaching degree during 2018, our CEO and founder Brady Hampton became incredibly interested with the work of well renown behaviour and learning theorists that he had discovered throughout his studies. For his research project he combined learning theorists work and social pedagogy with his own research on a subject he had always felt passionately about - PSHE Education. It was at this point, the fire was first lit for snap education and where our vision was developed.
Our ideology is simple. A happier, unprejudiced and kinder society. But how do we achieve this?
Our belief is that if schools teach the importance of empathy, kindness, humanity and our new "extra education" content combined with the current academic curriculum, future generations will be caring and progress the society we live in. In addition to this, after having conducted surveys of over 1000 people aged between 21-30, it became apparent an overwhelmingly clear majority of this generation left education without understanding everyday adult responsibilities, for example, personal finance, personal well-being and understanding politics. It is our view, that PSHE Education is the bridge to contemporary education and where snap education steps in.
Our vision is that all schools will use our platform to give every student in the UK an equal opportunity to engage in a high standard of PSHE Education. For too long, too many generations futures have been decided before they were even born, purely on luck. When we say 'luck', we mean, what family they're born into, the standard of education they'll receive and the opportunities or lack of opportunities that will come their way. Every student matters. Every student deserves the same opportunities as its peers. Although we accept that PSHE Education does not currently guarantee any student access to higher education or their dream job, we believe the teachings of our PSHE Education syllabus will inspire every student to be the best versions of themselves.
Combining Social Pedagogy with the learning theories of: Vygotsky, Bandura, Maslow and Pavlov, we feel that we have created a platform that ensures PSHE Education is repeatedly taught just like any other core subject to really push home the messages of its vital teachings.
With the way we have set up the pathways, we hope to see the sessions taught very openly and honestly by our nation's outstanding practitioners. This will give our young people inspiration and multiple role models while they embark on their own personal journeys and face important decisions surrounding the type of person they will become.
We believe society can always be better. Our platform gives everybody an equal opportunity to learn about paramount topics that occur in everyday adult life which unfortunately is not covered in the statutory curriculum.
In three words... Inspire. Progress. Repeat.
