About Otermans Institute

Otermans Institute (OI) is an international organisation based in London, focusing on research and developing affordable educational tools for a global audience using Artificial Intelligence (AI). OI is committed to democratising education through Artificial Intelligence, upskilling learners globally and making them more employable in Industrial Revolution 4.0.
We are on a mission to upskill 750 million students through soft skills and professional development skills training using AI- powered teachers, ensuring that no learner is left behind. Just recently, we launched the world’s first digital human AI teacher and a Conversational AI study buddy for children.
Separately, through our digital training, we are supporting learners who are forced out of school due to the pandemic, those who are in extremely remote locations, and those who have been affected by violence and war-like refugees in United Nations camps. We often work closely with governments including in the UK, NGOs and UN bodies to help upskill such learners and help them become more employable. Just in the past two years, we have impacted 35,000+ learners globally.
In this experience you will learn this teaching and training methodology, be a part of our journey, and gain experience while you create a direct and tangible impact in society. You will receive specific training on how to deliver online training to non-native English speakers and learners with special needs (certificate provided).
