Virtual College strikes twice at global Learning Technologies Awards

Virtual College followed up their 2016 success by collecting two trophies at the global Learning Technologies Awards 2017.

Widely recognised as Europe’s largest L&D event, the awards saw over 800 global industry leaders gather in London on the 29th November 2017 to celebrate the best in learning technologies both in the UK and worldwide.

The winners were decided after several days of online and face to face presentations to the judging panel.

Virtual College won awards in two different categories:

Gold – Excellence in the design of learning content in the public and non-profit sector

Virtual College was awarded gold for their project with the Home Office which has helped to raise awareness of Female Genital Mutilation.

The judges felt that: “A huge amount of thought and planning had gone into the design of this content to make it engaging and relevant for the audience and to address the topic sensitively for the audience.

“The engagement and reaction of learners was particularly positive and the project was well managed to involve a wide range of stakeholders.”

Silver – Learning Technologies Company of the Year – UK

Following on from Virtual College’s success in this category over the last two years, the judges commented “They clearly do a good job and their clients like them, excellent presentation, right on brief placed them right in the frame”

Speaking after the awards, Virtual College’s Managing Director, Hannah Brindle, commented:” These awards are a powerful endorsement of our company’s commitment to using technology to deliver quality learning solutions.

“We pride ourselves on the dedication and ability of our team to deliver exceptional results for our customers.”

Virtual College will be attending the Learning Technologies 2018 conference and exhibition from 31st January to 1st Feb 2018 on stand E6. Visitors are encouraged to visit the stand to discuss opportunities to work collaboratively to fulfil training requirements.
