The Journey Begins
Having been a teacher for a number of years, Leon Hady takes to Youtube to share English tutorials. Within 2 years the Youtube page had millions of hits and Leon becomes hooked on delivering learning online.
Headship and Beyond
Leon becomes Headteacher of an inner-city school. His first company is formed; a face to face tuition centre with the aim of helping disadvantaged students to achieve beyond their expectations. Leon and his team of excellent teachers, achieve Ofsted "Outstanding" for the school.
Expanding to all
After his successful time as a school leader, Leon creates TuitionKit; a student revision platform which makes tuition accessible to all. It has since supported over 250,000 people, and it was developed further with an exam focus, in the form of an upgraded student offering Exam Marker.
Understanding the financial strain schools face, Leon works with university lecturers and supply agencies to create a more democratic teacher training route, which ensures schools can now access career-wide training without the traditional disadvantages. It has helped hundreds of teachers, as a joint project with one of the nation’s largest supply agencies Academics to create, Academics Advance.
Complete Teacher Training
Guide’s reputation and mission is strengthened through partnership with Osiris Educational, one of the UK’s best known training companies, to develop Osiris Digital. Leon’s work has led to supporting hundreds of schools, thousands of teachers and hundreds of thousands of students - a small step towards the mission to end the world teacher shortage and ensure educational access for all.
After becoming a top 20 finalist in the Alibaba global start-up competition, Guide establishes offices in China. Collaboration and development alongside leading Chinese companies increases the reach of Guide's methodology via the Guide CORE video learning platform. To ensure rapid response from mentors Guide develop GoVidiGo capturing software to make online teaching a breeze.
Simultaneously, Guide also expands its presence in the UAE via a government partnership and is able to support thousands of teachers with their growth and development.
