Feedback that makes sense

We don't do homework

Our experiences and courses get your child working on projects, not homework. They can submit their project and get video feedback from our mentor team, who will advise what went well, and what could be even better about their work.

THEMES

Learning focused in three areas

We're focusing on the three areas that we think the children of today will need to approach the world of tomorrow.

Create something

Start a Business

All about how to create businesses - be they startups or charities, we want to help you make your child's ideas a reality. They can discover the skills, get the lingo down and test ideas to see them grow. 

Find your passion

Career Passport

Not sure what they want to be when they grow up? This is the place to start exploring. They can find out what kind of jobs people do, how they got there, and get an idea of what an actual day at work can look like. Career Passport can take them behind the scenes of a dancer, lawyer or even an astronaut!

Who are 8billionideas?

Down arrow icon
🔽

Hi there 👋, we're 8billionideas! We're a team of educators based in South London, in a little town called Surbiton. We love ideas, and we believe children are great at having them. Our business is built on 4 pillars; providing excellence for our customers, building long term relationships with everyone, leveraging our voice and platform for positive change in the world, and creating memorable experiences.

Didn't you used to be called 7billionideas?

Down arrow icon
🔽

Yes, we did! We rebranded in January 2021. You might see a few references to our old business while we change and update our systems, so please bear with us in the meantime.

What problem are you trying to solve?

Down arrow icon
🔽

From a young age we are given an image of success. Whether it's the grades that should be achieved, or that promotion we should be striving for; our view of success is sometimes unhelpful.

We realised that many education systems were not fully equipping students for their future, and as a result young people were missing out on vital skills that would lead to happiness and fulfilment. These skills are the ones that are transferrable, and allow students to pursue, and have a successful career following their passions. That is the skillset we focused on embedding, and that is the skillset that is our contribution to students and the education sector.

This is the problem we set out to solve within 8billionideas. A world of content, from videos to courses and experiences - all designed to give students the skills and belief to change the world.

Why is 8billionideas safe?
