Oxbridge, the Innovation Birmingham based distance learning provider is closing 2019 with a Gold standard award for ‘Best Use of Blended Learning – Commercial Sector’ from the Learning Technologies Awards.
This week’s win, which recognised the organisation’s Classroom Heroes programme, follows the biggest year yet for the innovative online college, which has won an impressive total of nine regional and industry awards in 2019.
Oxbridge beat off stiff competition from the highly acclaimed competition from the likes of Jet2.com (Silver Award), Calex UK & PSA Group (Bronze Award), L’Oréal, MG, Domino’s Pizza, Capita and Govia Thameslink. Despite this tough competition, Oxbridge received the Gold standard award for its Classroom Heroes programme. Launched in 2017, it is a modern, ‘blended learning’ programme for teaching assistant trainees.
Oxbridge’s founder and managing director, Matt Jones, said of the win:
“I am absolutely over the moon to have brought this award home; it’s a huge accolade for Oxbridge and finishes off an incredible year for us. This kind of award doesn’t happen by accident. We have an incredible team of writers, authors, tutors, and designers who put hours into making Oxbridge what it is today and to each and every one of them, I am sincerely thankful,” Matt continued.
In addition to their most recent award, Oxbridge has also picked up ‘Small Training Provider’ at the ICB LUCA Awards in addition to Matt Jones picking up two big wins at the West Midlands Leadership Awards 2019 for ‘Company Leader’ and ‘Overall Winner’.
Looking ahead to 2020, Matt continues:
“This year has been huge for us for so many reasons, from our impactful rebrand to the amazing additions to our trophy cabinet. However, what’s most important to us is that we keep pushing the boundaries of e-learning and delivering a way for students of all ages to continue their development.”
