About us

At AVADO, we’ve always been passionate about creating inspiring learning that has a lasting impact

More than 20 years of providing award-winning learning

Our Story

AVADO has been known by multiple names through the years, but our dedication to inspired learning has spanned more than two decades.

Originally known as Home Learning College, our earliest contributors began providing effective and engaging learning programs in 1990.

Although our initial approach to make a name for ourselves was distinctly analog — literally knocking on doors to extol the virtues of learning — we later experienced the dotcom revolution first-hand and took full advantage of the EdTech sector’s digital growth.

In 2016, we became AVADO, continuing a tradition of empowering people to enhance their capabilities, further their careers and stay motivated, no matter what challenges the future may bring.

Today, AVADO continues to reinvent professional learning with its digital-first approach. By combining the experience and know-how of Home Learning College with a passion for new technology and inspiring content, AVADO is the go-to education provider for businesses and professionals alike.
