Our story

Empowering parents, empowering children

Here at ZingiTT, we’re on a mission!

All those super-clever, academic, scientist-type bods who’ve done research into how children learn and how to help them succeed – well, they all agree on one thing. When parents engage with their children’s education and learning, those children are more likely to:

• Achieve well in their academic work
• Have positive attitudes and goals for education

 

It's all about getting involved

This is really huge news, and it’s huge news because it means that it’s not about how educated you are, it’s not about how well-off you are and it’s not about how much private tutoring you can afford to provide. No. It’s about how much we, as parents, get involved with our children’s education.

Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get involved with our children’s education these days, is it? It often seems like there are so many barriers preventing us from helping the way we want to - the confusing ‘school-speak’, the lack of confidence, personal anxieties about our own time at school … and many others.

 

Making it easy 

So one day towards the end of 2018, a group of us parents and educators from TT Education (slightly on a high after winning  School Improvement Provider of the Year 2018) sat down together and talked this through. Knowing that there were things that stopped parents being able to provide life-enhancing support to their children at this crucial stage of their development – well, it just didn’t seem fair. As passionate believers in the power of high-quality training in schools, this set our brains to work. How could we go one step further and take our training skills outside the classroom to support the people who work the hardest to help children – their parents? So us passionate folk worked day and night (okay, mostly day) to create ZingiTT!

Towards the end of 2018, Conor filmed himself breaking down the school-speak and generating ideas to support parents. Betsy worked tirelessly with parents of different-aged children to understand exactly what they would want and how they would want to access it. Chelsea maintained our spending habits and ensured we didn’t get too carried away.

And Jo? Jo took charge of all that techie stuff that would allow ZingiTT to come to life.

Some short weeks later, ZingiTT was ready to launch. ZingiTT's bank of short video clips are packed with fun, easy games, advice and tips to support parents everywhere to connect with their children’s learning.
