It wouldn’t be Christmas without an end-of-year review. And what a year it’s been.
What with being named Awarding Organisation of the Year by the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB) and picking up another accolade in the Learning Technologies Awards, 2018 has certainly been a fantastic 12 months to remember.
But those aren’t the only reasons we’ll be celebrating this Christmas. Our achievements this year have included:
- becoming the third largest awarding organisation in the UK
- beating our target of raising £50,000 for our chosen charity VICTA
- achieving over 800,000 users on our free counterterrorism e-learning in just a few months
- seeing two of our colleagues recognised by the Metropolitan Police for their contribution to counterterrorism training
- launching our e-assessment platform, Highfield Works, to bring our customers fast and effective online assessment
However, it’s not just about awards success. It’s about being the best provider of qualifications, training materials and e-learning to our many loyal customers. And we believe we are.
So once again, have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
And in case you missed them, here’s a round up of our top stories from the last few weeks of 2018.
