Announcing the shortlist for Learning Pool Awards 2021

27 September 2021 by Darren McCullagh

We’re delighted to announce the shortlist for Learning Pool Awards 2021.


Our prestigious Learning Pool Awards showcase our customers’ impressive achievements and after a little hiatus in 2020, we’re back!

We were blown away with the number of entries this year, each one a reflection of the hard work and commitment of each organization. There were submissions from around the globe and the competition was fierce, giving our judges the tough, but enjoyable job of debating who the winners should be.

We are incredibly proud and excited to reveal the 2021 shortlist.
