Dev Clever: A Brief History

dev clever: a brief history

Dev Clever is a software development company which was established in 2013 by pioneers with a passion for creating engaging experiences for our clients. Through our work in retail and online promotions we developed Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality experiences and saw their potential to have a transformational effect on people. Spotting an opportunity to harness this and create powerful learning content for young people we set about creating a one-of-a-kind careers experience.

Launch Your Career was developed to offer an exciting approach to careers education, using immersive technology and gamification to take young people on a journey of self-discovery. Launch Your Career helps users identify career pathways and develop the skills needed to successfully pursue and flourish in their chosen careers. It's a revolutionary way to promote careers and technical education to the workforce of the future, and to reduce the growing skills gap.

Our strong and successful performance and growth since launching LYC has propelled the company into a leading position in the rapidly growing global EdTech market.

The Inspirational Learning Group: a brief history

In the Summer of 2012, two young entrepreneurs, Ben and Michael, sat in a coffee shop in Staffordshire University. Sitting opposite them were two well-dressed professionals talking about how young people didn't have the skills needed for the world of work, which gave Ben and Michael the idea for The National Enterprise Challenge - a work-skills experience that brought employers and students together to help students learn about work-skills, and understand how they can develop them further. A year later it was ready to launch as The Inspirational Learning Group's first and premier skills programme.

The years that followed provided TILG with an opportunity to develop a whole range of additional challenges and programmes to help young people make informed decisions about their futures, and to provide them with the skills required for career success.

TILG is committed to playing its part in providing meaningful engagement with employers and continues to expand its range of challenges and educational programmes in response to the changing needs of employers, schools and young people.

The Team have now worked with over 500,000 students across the country and in 2019 the National Finals were held at the iconic Wembley Stadium. But our ambitions didn't stop there.

dev clever & tilg united

In late 2021 these two like-minded and pioneering organisations joined forces and united their product and programmes range to create the UK's most inspirational, unique and engaging 360 careers experience.

Our philosophy is to inspire through innovation and to develop educational experiences that engage young people and make careers readiness exciting. We believe linking careers to education is the best way to prepare our young people for a life after school and to prepare them for the world of work, for the benefit of all our futures. We believe in opportunities for all, regardless of academic ability or background. We believe in constantly building our knowledge to always be stand-out experts in our field, and in driving careers conversations forward at the highest level.
