Realising Mission Towards Personalised, Lifelong, Transformative Education
Crimson has acquired tutoring company NumberWorks'nWords, with 12,000 students across Australasia currently enrolled in the English and maths programmes.
Celebrated for building essential foundation skills in literacy and numeracy, the recent takeover of NumberWorks'nWords will expand Crimson’s offering of personalised education to more young learners, providing them with opportunities to build on their skill-set and advance their learning across a range of disciplines.
CEO and Co-founder of Crimson, Jamie Beaton and Chief Operations Officer and Co-founder Sharndre Kushor, say the deal is a milestone for young learners.
“ We are excited to share today that Crimson and NumberWorks'nWords have taken part in a deal that will catapult students’ trajectories towards the best education opportunities inside of the classroom and beyond, through personalised, lifelong education experiences.
