by | Sep 8, 2015 | Articles

We are really excited to see the 2015 e-Learning Awards shortlist announced – Towards Maturity Ambassadors and previous Benchmark participants feature in 35 of the 145 shortlisted organisations.

The NHS Academy in association with LEO featured in our 2015 Excellence in Leadership Development Report has been shortlisted 4 times, Kallidus has 5 shortlisted entrants and we’re thrilled to see Rob Hubbard and Andrea Miles up for the outstanding contribution of the year award!

The full shortlist for 2015 can be found here and sees a raft of first-timers joining previous winners in a bid to win a coveted E-Learning Award.

Judging the awards is no mean feat – 400 entries have been whittled down to 145 to create the most competitive a job co-ordingated by Tony Fracina from the eLearning Network who is working with a panel of 35 independent judges.

The winners will be decided during several days of online and face to face presentations, later in September. Each year after the awards, we feature a number of the award-winning stories as part of our Good Practice Partnership with e-Learning Age, so do check these out.

The e-Learning Awards Gala Evening will be held on 25 November at the Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge so if you have not booked your table yet, do it quickly!
