Ashridge Business School has scooped one of the top honours in a ceremony that showcases the best achievements of the year in education.
The Learning Awards 2014 accolade paid tribute to its web-based learning resource Virtual Ashridge which saw off competition from blue chip names like McDonalds, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Deutsche Post to win the Learning Technologies category.
It was the first time Ashridge Business School had entered the awards, run by the Learning and Performance Institute.
They were presented during a red carpet ceremony at London’s Dorchester Hotel, hosted by television presenter Natasha Kaplinsky.
Virtual Ashridge’s platform and approach were accredited by the judges as an outstanding example of the way in which learning technologies can transform an organisation’s business model.
Ashridge director of learning services Tony Sheehan said: “This is a magnificent result for our team of experts, which repeatedly pushes forward the boundaries of learning technology.
“Currently, we provide customised e-learning solutions to nearly one million learners worldwide and we’re looking forward to developing further innovations during the year ahead.”
Virtual Ashridge’s content stems from more than 50 years of Ashridge experience in developing organisations, managers and leaders across the world, through qualifications, development programmes, consultancy and coaching.
