Head of Computer Science, ADA College for Digital Skills
At Ada, the National College for Digital Skills, we aim to work together with Industry experts in their fields to bring real world learning into the classroom. Working together with Julian on "Business Applications of Social Media" was a great example of how this can be done. Julian added the extra dimension to the students' experiences, bringing in his extensive knowledge of setting up Social Media policies and running Social Media campaigns to bear on their learning. He brought the subject to life with an extensive range of Case Studies to illustrate concepts. He also built great relationships with our students, kick starting their journey towards becoming entrepreneurs.

We have been working with Julian Hall for the past year as part of our extended schools offer and have found it to be a first class programme. Students have developed entrepreneurial skills and as a result have become more confident young adults and more accomplished learners. I wholly endorse Ultra Education and the added value it provides for our young people in today's competitive world. I believe Ultra Education is filling a really important gap in the education system and would love to see the current curriculum become more skills based and diverse. The curriculum we have in place is incredibly effective but I do think we should give students the opportunity to explore entrepreneurship, especially in cases where children are not engaged or struggling academically.

"Ultra Education has helped to improve the children's literacy, communication and presentation skills. A number of our students knew they wanted to be in business but didn’t know how to do it…until Julian came along. Two students have set up a YouTube channel about Parkour which is now attracting followers. The curriculum we have in place is incredibly effective but I do think we should give students the opportunity to explore entrepreneurship, especially in cases where children are not engaged or struggling academically. Our students are learning how to manage money, develop ideas and communicate, which are really important skills used in everyday life".
Teaching entrepreneurship should be an essential part of today’s education. Ultra Education has dramatically increased the level of attainment and achievement in the young people we work with.
"UltraKids Club is an amazing idea! I’ve used the learning resources successfully to raise attainment and ambition in my students. I strongly believe in entrepreneurship in education and am glad it’s being delivered in a fun way."
Fleet Primary School
We were able to use the activities at the UltraKids Club to support our fundraising event at the school. The children and teachers resonate with the values and that we should do more of it. We chose UltraKids Club because we think it’s important that children learn about business as long as it’s alongside things like social responsibility
“I didn’t think I could be good at business because I’m a girl but reading about Malachi and Penelope makes me think I can do it too..They’re great!”
“I liked the course as a whole, especially the work involved building up towards the fair’s” “I enjoyed learning how to start a business from an idea” ” I really liked that the teachers never put down an idea but allowed you to explore and think deeper about things”
I like the Ultra Kids Club because it’s bright, interactive and personalised. It helps young children set goals and look at why they set these goals and set steps to achieve them. I think all young children should learn about running their own business and this is a great tool to help them. My little brothers loved the colouring book, the pictures and messages are awesome especially for children.
"Being an UltraKid is an awesome! I've grown in confidence and my business knowledge, my social media and business are growing daily!"
