Muscat: Pearson Online Academy UK Global, is delighted to announce the appointment of Jo Vigneron as Founding Director, for his inaugural term in September.
Jo Vigneron brings with her more than 20 years of teaching expertise.
In recent years, she has been instrumental in opening two highly successful schools in the UAE and now aims to make Pearson Online Academy UK Global the “best online school in the world”. Jo’s educational career has encompassed key leadership positions, teaching and public speaking roles around the world.
Sharing her take on the new school, Jo said: “We have access to some of the most innovative technology available, and our teachers are experts in their fields, with superb teaching skills. As educators who have worked through the last 18 months of changes and developments in the sector, the perception that education is limited by location is over. Now that the lid has been lifted, it’s up to us to meet the challenges before us. Our young people today are more connected than ever. It is up to us as educators to facilitate meaningful connections and access to learning opportunities on a global scale. Backed by Pearson and all their expertise, a team of great teachers and a school full of amazing students. I have absolutely no doubt that we have the winning formula and I look forward to all the adventures that lie ahead.
