Tom Richmond

Founder, EDSK

Tom has spent over 15 years in the world of education. He began his career teaching at one of the country’s leading state schools. After three years in teaching, he moved into politics to work on policy development and research across the education, skills and welfare sector. This culminated in spending two years as an advisor to ministers at the Department for Education. After leaving the Department he spent another two years in teaching before returning to education policy and research in 2018. In early 2019, he launched the ‘EDSK’ think tank that aims to design new and better ways for policymakers and educators to help every learner succeed – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
