ABOUT Home School On Demand

Deborah Fitzsimmons,
GO2Educate, HSOD Director

Dear colleagues, parents and students.  Thank you for visiting Home School On Demand.  I launched GO2Educate as self employed in 2017 after taking a career break following seventeen years as a full time teacher.  I decided to take the opportunity to refresh my own knowledge and skills back in industry during this new ‘digital age’ where business and technology has evolved beyond recognition. I have two children currently studying  GCSEs and A Levels and very much appreciate the challenges for the teacher and parents in supporting young people to navigating the teenage years, manage the challenges of study/examinations and move forward into further study or employment.  Home School On Demand Ltd launched in 2020.  We are committed to supporting educators, parents and young people through this journey.  Scroll down to find out further information about the team, our qualifications and experience.
