Our Client

Since launching in 2011, their resources are now used by over 150,000 teachers, in over 60 countries and in 20 different languages. Their production studio is based in Glasgow with approximately 70 members of staff, and they have a smaller office with sales and marketing teams based on the Southbank, London.
