South Wales Education Company scoops Silver in national Learning Technology Awards
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded silver in the flagship competition for the educational sector at the recent Learning Technology Awards presented at the Park Plaza, London. Against stiff competition in this sector, this small enterprise exceeded expectations coming second to the multi-national company, Speexx.
Thus far, we have enabled over 2000 students to graduate through Postgraduate Diplomas and Masters courses.
Our Chairman, Prof Steve Davies, a physician at the University Hospital of Wales commented; ‘We feel particularly proud to have our achievements in distance learning recognised. This is a phenomenal achievement for us as a small company coming second to a major multi-national company but also beating billion pound companies such as Kaplan, Swiss GE, and Knect365. Our mission is to improve global healthcare through medical education and we have had a great year in helping healthcare professionals achieve their educational objectives. We focus on online education in innovative ways to assist healthcare professionals in conforming to the demands of postgraduate learning. Chronic disease management represents one of the biggest challenges to the world in terms of impact on health and consumption of healthcare resources. We see education as being a vital component in the fight against disease and improved patient outcomes’.
The judges recognised the contribution the diploma-msc programmes made to global healthcare learning and felt Learna was ‘an inspiring example of how online technologies can reach health care professionals across the globe and enable them to achieve Masters level qualifications – fully online. The commitment and drive of personal tutors, the robust course design and a growing catalogue of available subject areas are all key factors in the outstanding levels of student engagement and results.’
