The Learning Performance Institute (LPI), with thousands of members worldwide, is the global membership body for learning professionals, having continually led the field in workplace learning and development since 1995.
Each year the LPI each year host their ‘Learning Awards‘. These seek to ‘recognise innovation and achievement in workplace learning.’
The Learning Awards, sponsored by Microsoft, attract hundreds of entries from more than fifty countries across the globe. The ceremony this year, due to Covid, was not held at the usual venue at a top London hotel. Instead, it was live-streamed to thousands of viewers internationally online.
As a finalist already, getting the recognition for my project with Accrington Academy was hugely welcome.
However, more was to come, when the project was announced as Gold Award winners in the category ‘The People Development Programme of the Year – Public Sector’.
Here’s the video of me receiving the award from Claudia Winkleman. My daughters, huge Strictly Come Dancing fans, were delighted to get in on the act too!
