About Us

Martin Bailey (Director of Animate 2 Educate Ltd) has been a Primary School Teacher in the North East of England for the past 16 years, teaching and acting as ICT Coordinator in schools in South Tyneside, County Durham and Gateshead.

In September 2011 he founded Animate 2 Educate as a sole trader, with the intention of delivering curriculum-based animation, green screen and movie making workshops to pupils in schools throughout the North East.

In October 2012 the company received limited status and 'Animate 2 Educate Ltd' was born. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength and continues to grow and diversify all the time.

In addition to offering bespoke pupil workshops (now to pupils throughout the UK), a big part of Animate 2 Educate Ltd now centres around delivering staff training on all areas of Primary Computing.
