Mindful Education has been named Edtech Company of the Year at the Global Business Tech Awards 2021 at a virtual awards ceremony held on 17 June.
Mindful Education had previously won this category at the UK Business Tech Awards in 2019, but this time faced tough competition from established international edtech company D2L – creators of the Brightspace online learning platform.
Commenting on Mindful Education’s win the judges said: “We are extremely impressed with this entry, which solves real user problems and improves real user journeys…The showreel was also brilliant. A standout winner!”
This is the third award win in the space of just a few weeks for Mindful Education, following wins at the Learning Excellence Awards and PQ Awards.
Founder and Managing Director Mark Mckenna said: “We are delighted to be named EdTech Company of the Year! It is especially pleasing that the three awards we have won this year have each recognised different aspects of our work: Firstly, for our design and content creation; then the quality of our courses; and now for our overall impact for learners.
From speaking with colleges, teachers, learners and employers, the pandemic has focused attention on the quality of educational media, and how the digital, media and face-to-face elements of a course combine to deliver a brilliant learning experience. Our team works consistently on how best to blend these different elements across our products, services and partnerships, so it is wonderful to see that focus and dedication recognised.”
Mindful Education works in partnership with colleges, employers and training providers across the UK to deliver media-rich professional courses and apprenticeships in accounting, management, law and human resources. To find out more, visit www.mindful-education.co.uk
