Winner: EdTech Breakthrough Awards 2021

We are proud to announce that the National Education Group (NEG) have won ‘Overall Learning Management System (LMS) Solution Provider of the Year’ at the prestigious EdTech Breakthrough Awards 2021.

The award recognises the huge strides we have made over the past 12 months in developing National Online Safety (who operate under NEG) into an all-in-one online safety training provider for schools, supporting them through a range of award-winning CPD and a bespoke learning management system which enables advanced usability and reporting features more accustomed to a specialist software provider.

James Southworth, Managing Director, said:

“It’s always great to win an award but to be recognised by the EdTech Breakthrough Awards programme is a real honour.

Online safety is always important but the feedback we got from the school community at the start of the pandemic suggested a growing concern that children were likely to be more vulnerable to online risks and that additional support was needed.

This led to a comprehensive review of our existing service which we enhanced and strengthened further. But we also combined this with significant investment in our learning platform that allowed leaders to build bespoke online safety training programmes for their staff and plan, roll out, track, report and direct their whole school’s online safeguarding provision in one secure, online space.

Not only that, we launched a new mobile app to mobilise information and create a learning environment built around convenience, fluidity and accessibility, rather than sticking to rigid technological structures, delivering education and training in direct response to schools’ needs and placing vital information to keep children safe online into the hands of our schools’ communities

It’s been a tough year for everyone but it feels great to win this award and receive the recognition the team deserve for how much work they’ve put in over the last 12 months in what have been truly unprecedented times.”

James Johnson, managing director of EdTech Breakthrough said:

“We chose National Education Group because they put user experience at the heart of everything they do. Users can instantly access the remote video CPD anywhere, anytime, progressing at their own pace inside or outside school hours and the world-leading mobile apps also make it easy to fit training around a busy workload or home life. Their focus on research and development has resulted in a custom-built platform now likened more to Netflix and Spotify, rather than what you’d expect from a traditional e-learning platform. Congratulations on being the winner of our ‘Overall LMS Solution Provider of the Year’ award.”

The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honour excellence and recognise the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, e-Learning, Career Preparation and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,000 nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.
