"I’ve worked with and continue to work with the most amazing, gifted and dedicated people."

Cath Jeffrey

Deputy Managing Director

I’ve been at TTS for 9 years and in so many ways I have my dream job. The road was not direct though and along the way I have been fortunate to have sat in almost every seat: teacher, buyer, seller, product developer, manager and marketer. I’ve worked with and continue to work with the most amazing, gifted and dedicated people.

As well as being Deputy MD, I am also responsible for our wonderful and enthusiastic marketing team of 55 hard-working, sparkly people. This team make things happen, turning over 2,500 ideas from teachers, advisors and practitioners into resources that sell to every school in the UK and to 64 different countries. They meet with over 1,200 of our customers each and every year, to ensure that we know what they want and need and to make sure that our research is thorough. Our aim is to give every child, every day, a reason to love learning and we do that by loving what we do, by learning every day and by always aiming to be the very best we can.

The TTS writing slope is one of my favourite innovations. After meeting with a passionate Occupational Therapist called Alison Harris it was clear that writing slopes were great for helping children improve their writing, however a lot of those available were big, bulky, wooden and had a stigma attached to them. The TTS team created a cool, neat, stackable slope that children would be happy and eager to use and nine years later, we have a complete range and sell thousands worldwide.

In my free time, I like to fill my home with people I love as well as run, walk, cycle, sail, paint, sew and knit.
