Diane Morrow, Founder
As a founder of mTech.Academy, Diane Morrow is working to transform the educational model and provide young people the experiences and skills that will prepare them for successful careers in the digital workforce.
An educator with more than a decade of classroom experience, Diane has worked in a variety of settings, delivering A Level, GCSE Business Studies and careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG).
At Banbridge Academy, Diane’s interest for careers was channeled into organising school-wide careers fairs and raising awareness of career alternatives amongst school leavers. Through industry connections and networks beyond the classroom, she brought the subject of Business Studies to life through inspirational guest speakers and visits to leading enterprises and brands.
It was her passion for enterprise education and a desire to increase students’ awareness of their career options that prompted her to leave the classroom to lead Catalyst Inc’s Generation Innovation programme. There, she continued to forge productive links with industry to deliver collaborative education programmes for 14-19-year-old students.
Diane graduated with a First Class (Hons) Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) Post Primary Business & Enterprise Education from Stranmillis University College, Belfast.
