Squared was originally developed by Google in 2012 as a full time six-week face-to-face course which was designed to develop digital leaders of the future. This focus on the combination of digital knowledge and collaborative skills is a fundamental aspect of Squared and the cornerstone around which all of the content is built.

Squared Online launched in 2013 as the part-time, online learning version of that programme. It’s developed with Google and powered by AVADO. What does this mean? AVADO runs all of the day-to-day operations associated with Squared Online, from marketing and admissions to delivery of the course. The course content is an equal collaboration between both organisations – we jointly discuss and agree on all aspects of the course, from the syllabus and learning objectives to the tutor recruitment and the teaching style.

AVADO is a global education and training business headquartered in the UK and has partnerships with a number of well-known organisations such as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) amongst others.
