About Us

Rocketship Solutions is a small business owned and operated by Barry and Dawn Sampson. It was established in 2008 to provide digital learning solutions to individuals and organisations. We have always been a virtual company, working from home whenever possible. As a result, we can keep our costs low and make sure our prices are affordable.

From 2009 to 2019 the company operated primarily as a partner and part owner of Onlignment Limited and then Skills Journey Limited (previously named The More Than Blended Learning Company). From 2020 onwards we are working solely as an independent business.

We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with a wide range of clients that includes individuals, small and large business, charities, local authorities and NGOS.  

As we don’t have (and never will have) external investors we are driven by what we believe to be right, not by shareholders and venture capitalists chasing profits.
