We are thrilled to announce that our course Consent Matters: Boundaries, Respect and Positive Intervention won Gold in ‘Excellence in the Design of Learning Content’ for the UK Commercial sector category of the Learning Technologies Awards 2017.
With over 400 applicants for the awards this year, including some top industry names and large organisations, we were delighted to be shortlisted in the final 7 of our category and we are now immensely proud and pleased our hard work on this course has been acknowledged with a Gold award.
Consent Matters received some great feedback, as the judges praised the topicality of the course and the high quality of our learning materials.
What did the judges think?
The project addressed a clearly defined need concerning difficult and delicate subject matter and was extremely well aligned with its diverse, global audience. The rich content was thoroughly researched and constructed, showing great attention to detail and high-quality case studies, scenarios and interactions throughout.
It is a superb example of investing in the research phase to develop a strong authentic narrative which is clearly engaging an audience not only to invest time in this learning but to continue those conversations into daily life.
