Apple Expert Joins Startup CareerFoundry To
Revolutionize Teaching Teachers To Teach Code
1888PressRelease - Former Head of Apple
Education, Alan Greenberg, moves to Director at
CareerFoundry and develops platform to teach UK
teachers technology to meet future mandate
requirements. As Apple's Head of Higher-Ed in
the UK and Head of Education in Asia, Alan
Greenberg became a thought leader and a pioneer
of the now thriving Ed-Tech industry. Greenberg
will now use his expertise as the new Director at
CareerFoundry, a mentored training platform for
coding and design, to build a product that will
enable school teachers to more effectively teach
coding in the classroom. "In the UK and
worldwide there is an increasing demand for
teachers to engage with digitally native
students," Greenberg explains, "At Career Foundry
we've developed a 'teach the teacher' product to
support education's next language challenge the
language of code." A Business Development and
Marketing specialist, Greenberg headed up the
EMEA Higher Education before moving on to
becoming Apple's Head of Education in Asia. While
with Apple, Greenberg developed the roll-out of
iTunes Universities in Europe allowing teachers
to give each class a customized learning
experience through iTunes U on the iPad. Now
working to change how coding is perceived and
taught on a global scale, Greenberg has teamed up
with Europe's 1 online training platform
CareerFoundry to deliver this in-demand product.

"We've seen such a clear need for this. With
governments saying every child needs to have a
rudimentary understanding of code, schools are
expected to implement this into their programs.
However, finding school teachers who can code is
a near impossibility, so creating a system to
teach teachers to teach is a logical first
step." Emil Lamprecht, CMO at CareerFoundry With
Greenberg's extensive experience and
CareerFoundry's hand built LMS, the company has
built a product to tackle the increasing global
tech skills gap through the education of the next
generation of programmers. But changing the way
schools and teachers are educated is just the
first step. "CF are the first startup I've come
across with the courage to truly embrace change
in the learning of computing skills in schools,
and to do so in such a fundamentally new and
exciting way". Alan Greenberg, Director at
CareerFoundry CareerFoundry (http//www.careerfou
ndry.com) is a globally accessible, customized
training program for User Experience Design and
Web Development. Experienced mentors review,
coach and meet with students regularly to
accelerate their learning curves, helping them to
