What I do
Jed is a Programme Manager in the Education team at Nesta.
Before Nesta, Jed was Programme Director at Researchers in Schools, a teacher training programme for PhD researchers, which aims to increase the number of subject specialists teaching shortage subjects. The programme is delivered by the university access charity The Brilliant Club.
Prior to that, he worked for Teach First, supporting new teachers and partner schools in South London. Jed trained as an English teacher through Teach First himself, teaching in Nottinghamshire before leading the English team at an all-through school in Lewisham, South-East London.
Outside of work, he loves cooking, travelling, watching and playing football, and is running his first marathon in 2018.
