Experts Course Setup Schudio

Schudio Ian Richardson


I head up a team of tech, education and marketing specialists based in England and Canada. For the last 10-years we have delivered web services and software to help the school, college and private training sectors thrive online.

In 2019 we launched Schudio TV using the Thinkific platform. It is an international community of 40,000 education professionals and parents who support young people with special educational needs and disabilities. Our Managing Director has a child with Down’s Syndrome and passionately advocates within the education sector. In addition to the traditional virtual learning tools, this community is highly active with live video conferencing, forums, discussions and peer-to-peer networking. The experience of these high volume interactions is something we leverage for our clients.

High profile client work includes:
  • To coincide with John Amaechi’s best selling leadership book, The Promises of Giants, an international leadership development programme -

  • Regional government contracts supporting young people to experience employers and better plan their onward progression to employment and higher education

  • Talent pipelines for major employers who wish to develop candidates for hard-to-fill vacancies and better meet their inclusivity objectives

  • Community engagement for construction organisations and others who need to meet corporate and social responsibility objectives

  • A virtual learning environment for helping SEO professionals at all levels maximise their business and career potential

  • Services

    There are 4 main areas of support we offer to schools and colleges.

This can include integrations with your existing web tech, video conferencing, forums, email marketing, social media and MIS integrations.
