Why it all started…

The Guardian Teacher Network and Guardian Jobs survey of 4450 UK teachers, finds 98% say they are under increasing pressure and 82% describe their workload as “unmanageable”.

Mike Dowling was a teacher of mathematics in a UK high school – enduring the typical gruelling workload and high-stakes accountability of any teacher, he identified the need for a technology-driven workflow system to relieve teacher administration.

Below are some achievements since Milk’s launch in 2015:

  • Saving teachers 2 hours a week in administration
  • Net budget savings of £7500pa for UK secondary schools
  • Consistent homework setting
  • Student and parent engagement with home learning and educational performance
  • Streamlining school communication
  • Greater access to student-centric data on attendance, behaviour and subject progress
  • 79% of parents have said that MILK has been a positive way forward and 74% have said it makes it easier to understand the homework (customer survey January 2017)
  • Trial studies indicated Milk improved student punctuality by 87% and homework submission by 44%

Our mission is to improve learner effectiveness by reinforcing the trinity of teacher, student and parent with better access to student-centric data, shared accountability and less arduous administration for teachers.
