Our Story

Why we founded Julius

As former executives at Pearson (the world’s largest education company), we know that the greatest challenge people often face in taking advantage of educational opportunities is understanding and charting their own career journey.  We founded Julius to help provide economic advancement for millions of current and potential green infrastructure workers, while addressing the workforce demands of employers to up-skill and serve the needs of their communities.

About our name

Those who serve in the infrastructure community are part of a vital profession going back thousands of years. In honor of that legacy, we derive our name from Sextus Julius Frontinus (35-103 AD), the public servant, military general, and innovator who was appointed by the emperor to head Rome’s water commission. He led pioneering initiatives to improve the city’s nine critical but aging aqueducts, as well as its infrastructure workforce.

Our values

Julius is proud of its diverse and innovative team, made up of industry experts, educators, and technologists. We are focused on ensuring everyone can participate and benefit from the opportunities created by the energy transition.
