News: Rotherham educational software company appoints new sales manager


Rotherham-based u-xplore, a dynamic educational software company, has appointed Simon Calderbank as national sales manager. With over 12 years’ sales experience in the education sector, Simon has enjoyed a varied career working for companies such as Lego in its software division. Latterly, he spent two years as an account director for the northern region of Netmedia Education, a virtual learning environment. In his new role, Simon will be responsible for generating sales of u-xplore interactive, an innovative software solution which engages with young people through cutting edge media. u-xplore has been working with schools and businesses over the last five years to strengthen links between the two by using the latest technology to bring business into the classroom. "I am delighted to be joining u-xplore; the company has been growing rapidly simply through word-of-mouth and there is huge potential to make more schools and local authorities aware of this unique solution to the problem of building closer links between education and business," explains Simon. "This is becoming increasingly important as schools introduce the new Diplomas which demand a high level of employer involvement." Already, u-xplore interactive is available to more than 100,000 students in secondary schools across South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Northumberland, Hull and Ayrshire. In addition the company also has plans to roll out the programme nationally to offer support to schools and young people throughout the UK. u-xplore has also secured the participation of a number of key employers including ITV Yorkshire, the Ministry of Sound, Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Glasgow Prestwick Airport.
