AVADO win Best Online Distance Learning Programme 2016 Award
Last night, AVADO and CIPD’s online Learning and Development qualification was recognised in the Best Online Distance Learning Programme 2016 category at the Learning Technologies Awards with a Silver Award.
Launched last spring, the CIPD L&D Intermediate Diploma programme was the first CIPD qualification to be offered fully online and was developed by L&D experts and industry figures including Laura Overton, Clive Shepherd and Stella Collins.
The programme has been incredibly popular and is already proving its impact, with 2 out of 3 learners already applying new skills in the workplace prior to completing the programme, with our first group graduating this month.
Andy Lancaster, Head of L&D Content at CIPD commented on the news:
“This is a fitting tribute to the small, brilliant L&D team at CIPD and AVADO that showed creative thinking, dedication and a commitment to design and deliver an excellent learning experience.”
Amy Crawford, Managing Director of Professional Qualifications at AVADO added: “We are absolutely delighted to have been recognised by the panel at Learning Technologies for a programme that has been truly pioneering in addressing the L&D skills gap.”
CIPD chose AVADO as their official partner for online qualifications and together the partnershp has now created a series of online L&D and HR programmes. These exclusive qualifications combine CIPD’s subject matter expertise and thought-leadership with AVADO’s online course experience to create learning that works for the HR and L&D professions.
