Highfield e-learning wins silver at the Learning Technologies Awards 2018

Highfield e-learning has won one of the major prizes at this year’s prestigious Learning Technologies Awards – the second year running it’s achieved one of the e-learning sector’s most sought-after accolades.

The organisation, which is part of the Highfield Group, won a silver medal in the ‘Excellence in the design of learning content – UK commercial sector’ category at an awards ceremony on Wednesday 21 November 2018 at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel, London.

The award adds to the business’s overall medal tally after it took a gold award in the ‘Best use of learning technologies to ensure compliance application’ in 2017, the first time it had ever entered the awards.

The Learning Technologies Awards is one of the biggest awards ceremonies in Europe, and open to some of the most famous digital names in the world. The judges were particularly impressed across the board by Highfield’s highly interactive, scenario-based training, which focuses on potential real-life situations, their consequences and how individuals can make a huge difference by acting quickly.

Highfield took the award for its duty manager e-learning course for Marks & Spencer, which has helped their business save millions of pounds through giving staff the knowledge to improve their operational performance and business continuity.

Chris Sprenger, Highfield MD, said, ‘This is a great achievement for Highfield e-learning and for our dedicated team. I’m extremely proud of the work we do with some of the biggest names in business, and the proven outcome and impact our e-learning delivers for them. I genuinely believe we have one of the best offers in terms of both off-the-shelf and bespoke e-learning, and it’s immensely satisfying to see that recognised.’

John Frost, Head of Business Continuity at Marks & Spencer, said, ‘Marks & Spencer takes great pride in being a ‘digital first’ retailer and the design of this course is a perfect example of how interactive technology has kept us at the forefront in our sector for dealing with any number of possible scenarios in-store in order to protect our customers, staff, buildings, stock and profits. The resultant retention of knowledge and the increase in confidence of our duty managers has been incredible.’

The Highfield Group is one of the UK’s leading educational organisations and publishers, and winner of the Queen’s Award in 2016, a Learning Technologies Award in 2017 and Awarding Organisation of the Year in 2018.
