A new stage for Encounter Edu

What's the news?

Encounter Edu was a brand created by Digital Explorer CIC in 2018. We did this to reflect our broader education goals beyond working with expeditions.

The pandemic affected us with a huge increase in interest in our live lessons, but we lacked the resources to be able to take advantage of this. Digital Explorer CIC made the decision to hive off the live lesson portion of our work and the Encounter Edu brand into a new for-profit entity, Encounter Edu Ltd, to attract investment.

We are delighted to share that this has been successful and we have attracted investment from some of the UK's leading angel investors, and are growing our live lesson offer, with a new premium service starting in 2022.

What does this mean for our registered users?

The ownership of the Encounter Edu website (https://encounteredu.com) has been transferred from Digital Explorer CIC to Encounter Edu Ltd, with the Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy, and Cookie Policy updated to reflect this change.

User accounts will be retained on the basis that this will continue to allow you to access the website, download resources, and book live lessons, without disruption.

All registered users have been logged out and an alert to this message will be shown on the next sign-in.

Users have the option of accepting these new Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy and continuing to use the website or ask for their data and account to be deleted via their user profile.

Will users still receive marketing emails?

Users will continue to receive marketing emails from Encounter Edu Ltd based on the preferences they expressed on registration, or have updated since. This is on the basis that you would still like to know about the live lessons and other opportunities on offer. These preferences can be changed at any time via the user profile.

Newsletter subscribers will only receive updates about the wider education programmes that will continue to be delivered by Digital Explorer CIC.

What if I have any further questions?

Thank you for being part of this journey with us so far, and we look forward to working with you in future.

With very best wishes,

Jamie and the team
