Announcing the shortlist for Learning Pool Awards 2019

13 September 2019 by Rachael Rooney

We’re delighted to announce the shortlist for Learning Pool Awards 2019.


Our prestigious Learning Pool Awards showcase our customers’ impressive achievements and this year marks the 11th anniversary of our annual awards, and 11 years of our customers’ success.

We were blown away with the amount of entries this year, each one a reflection of the hard work and commitment of each organisation. With lots of submissions from customers around the globe, the competition was extremely fierce.

Giving our judges the tough, but the very enjoyable, job of debating who the winners should be.

We are incredibly proud and excited to reveal the 2019 shortlist.
