Saxon Phipps is Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Year13.
Year13 is an EdTech company that uses data and technology to introduce young people to education and employment — democratising opportunity and preparing them for the ever-changing world of work.
Year13 is closing the gap on a 20th century approach to vocational learning. The organisation aims to develop generations of young people into productive, resilient and passionate workers.
The team at Year 13 applies this principle to several youth engagement strategies and programs for the Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Engineers Australia and the Industry Skills Organisations (Digital, Mining and Human Services).
Saxon speaks regularly at events on youth issues, and has featured at The Australian Financial Review – Higher Education Summit and the Australian Davos Connection: Future of Education Summits.
He is also on the advisory board for the National Careers Institute and Initiative for the Federal Government’s Department of Education Skills and Employment.
