Gold | E-learning development company of the year

We were honoured to win gold in this highly competitive category. We focused our application around the work we did with the NHS, PACE (Parents Against Child Sexual Exploitation), and Housing Ombudsman Service. The recognition of this work, combined with how we catalogue our methods and products, meant that we were able to proudly take home the Gold award.

The judges commented that: "Virtual College captured our imagination from the outset. Their agile methodology has delivered significant results in customer satisfaction.”
