The Learning Excellence Awards span the training, learning and development activities provided by companies – whether in-house, or through professional training/learning organisations.
We are happy to accept constructive criticism that will enable us to make the Awards even more representative of this vibrant sector in their second year. For instance, you may spot a gap in the categories. If so, please let us know how we might fill the gap.
The Category list is not overburdened with wordy criteria. We believe in not being too prescriptive, preferring you to tell your story in your own way for the judges. All we ask is that you use the basic template of headings in your submission document. This helps the judges when comparing entries and it helps the marking system by allowing allocations of marks to each sector of a submission to be used consistently.
The Coronavirus restrictions are having a profound effect on business activities, but key dates under normal circumstances are:
June 1: Call for entries opens each year
October 31: Closing date for entries
November, December: Judging
November 30: Deadline for announcement of short-listed Finalist companies going forward to final judging stage
April 16: The aspect most affected by Covid-19 restrictions is the announcement of the winners. Because it looks as though live events will now be postponed until the Autumn, we are going to press ahead with plans for a streamed online presentation. More details very soon.
Time is always precious and sometimes writing an entry submission is one of those jobs put off until the last moment. For a helping hand to write your awards entries contact:
