Meet Robert Paddock…
Robert is the Co-founder of GetSmarter, an online education company that has educated over 90,000 working professionals from 134 countries around the world, and partners with Universities such as Harvard, Cambridge, MIT, Oxford, LSE and Stanford. GetSmarter sold to Nasdaq-listed 2U in 2017. 

Rob is now the Founder and CEO of Valenture Institute, a global online high school. Grade 8-13 learners can now attend a fully-fledged online-only high school where they’re able to study from anywhere in the world, or learn online at one of their boutique campuses. Here, students attend campus by day and continue their studies alongside global classmates in live, online classes. Campuses are kitted out with incredible and exclusive features and facilities for students – and have many perks for parents! Think on-demand transport, a grocery delivery service, a production space and catered meals. 

Both offer an internationally-recognised British curriculum, access to cutting-edge online learning technology, flexibility for your family, mentor and learning coach support and access to future-forward teaching practices. For the best student experience, the school limits the number of students per class and has a premium faculty-to-student ratio to ensure every student gets the attention they require and deserve.
