CEO Amy Crawford introduces you to Avado

Today's workforce needs transforming for the future;
True transformation isn't digital, it's human.

Avado is an award-winning learning partner who design and deliver digital, interactive learning experiences. These are aimed at equipping a diverse pool of UK talent with the digital, data and business skills that they need to power both the growth of their organisation and themselves.

With over 10 years’ experience in the industry, we know that the world of work is changing more rapidly than ever. The demands on today’s organisations have drastically accelerated and so too has the emphasis on the impact their people make.

We are proud to support some of the largest and most innovative organisations in the UK including: Google, BT, NHS, British Airways, UK Civil Service, Legal & General and AstraZeneca with their important people transformation challenges.

We help them to:

  1. Reduce the time it takes to recruit new talent and make these new hires work ready.
  2. Reduce the cost of recruitment and increase new hire success rate.
  3. Increase diversity, driving enhanced levels of innovation and organisational agility.
  4. Improve their use of UK government skills support, such as the apprenticeship levy and skills boot-camp funding.

At the forefront of Avado’s offering sits FastFutures, a work-readiness programme which provides young people from all backgrounds with the digital business skills organisations need, kickstarting their careers and addressing the skills gap for employers. Since it’s launch in 2020, FastFutures has had over 5000 young people graduate from the programme. Many of these have then continued their development by progressing onto our digital apprenticeship programmes developed in collaboration with industry partners such as CIPD and Tableau.

    “We’ve been talking about digital disruption for years, but few have defined the ingredients for learning which truly help companies to transform. We gave Avado the challenge to re-imagine our Squared programme in marketing and digital leadership and create an online version of a face-to-face experience. The learning methodology for Squared Online is simply outstanding. It has allowed thousands of people to follow the course while keeping it immersive, experiential, social and practical. This really transforms behaviours.” Shuvo Saha, Director, Google Digital Academy, which has an international partnership with Avado.
