Emmanuel Akpan-Inwang

Founder and Director, Lighthouse Pedagogy Trust

After graduating, Emmanuel joined the Teach First programme and taught English at a secondary school in Birmingham. It was because of his experiences teaching looked after children that Emmanuel decided to work with a group of other Teach First ambassadors to explore improving their educational outcomes. It was this research that inspired Lighthouse Pedagogy Trust. Before founding Lighthouse, Emmanuel worked in a charity providing training and work opportunities to disadvantaged young people and in the management consultancy and technology sectors helping organisations use technology to support young people better.
