Leamington-based LearningAge Solutions has won a national elearning award for the second year running.

The awards ceremony took place at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square.

LearningAge won silver in the category of ‘Best eLearning Project – Private Sector’ for a project that they did with the bookseller, Waterstones. This category is the most competitive of all the award categories, with over 30 projects entered from all over the world.

Managing director Rob Hubbard said: ‘We are thrilled to have beaten off stiff competition from the biggest players in the elearning industry to win the silver award this year. We may be a small company, but we have shown that we can do excellent, creative, high quality work that enables us to compete with the best – and win.

“Waterstones Academy began life as a project to train their 4,500 booksellers how to sell Kindles in time for Christmas 2012 but has developed into so much more. The innovative performance-focused, goal-based approach that we took, is now central to the way Waterstones develops their employees.”

LearningAge Solutions specialises in designing, developing and delivering creative, innovative and budget-conscious elearning and blended learning solutions, including systems, apps and content. They also provide elearning consultancy and training services.

Established in 2005, the company works with a range of medium to large private and public sector organisations. Clients include Waterstones, University of Cambridge, Visa CEMEA, BP, Tarkett and Sellafield Ltd.
