A man who set up his own e-learning company went back to school to give his teachers a lesson.

Former Guiseley School student Seb Francis, 23, returned to the classroom to train teachers in the new online learning platform provided by his own business Titus Learning.

Seb, who left the school in 2010, set up his company at the age of 22 and now works not only with schools in the UK but also in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The Guiseley-based business provides customised software to schools which is used as an 'online learning platform' and 'online communcation tool'. The platform can be used to store resources, such as educational videos, worksheets and revision guides, and to create activities. It can also act as a personal area for users to customise and store their own resources online. The communication tool allows parents and teachers to login online or to an app based system to view information on their child or student.

The business, which has a team of ten staff, is expecting to take on more over the next 12 months, with plans to focus on different regions.

Seb said: "As well as working with UK schools, a large focus for Titus Learning is working with overseas international schools. These are typically English speaking schools that will follow the British or American curricula. We've just recently signed up a school in Brunei (we're due to be in Thailand, Malaysia and Brunei over October/November) and also work with schools in Europe, Africa and the Middle East."

He added: "Heading back to school was great but I’ve got to admit, it was a little odd being on the other side of the desk. It was really nice to catch up with all my teachers and hopefully they’re proud of what I’ve achieved and the system we’re providing."
