Highlights from the Learning Awards 2018

The learning sector’s annual celebration of outstanding achievement, best practice and excellence in corporate learning and performance will be live streamed from the Dorchester on Thursday 7th February 2019.

Bringing together 450 guests from international organisations, the Learning Awards will honour the highest performing organisations and individuals from the L&D industry.

BAFTA-nominated TV and radio celebrity Claudia Winkleman will host the evening where the finalists and winners of fifteen fiercely-contested categories will be announced, including Learning Provider of the Year, Learning Technologies of the Year, Apprenticeship Programme of the Year, Learning Leader of the Year, Rising Star Award and the prestigious Colin Corder Award for Outstanding Services to Learning.

The livestream will be hosted on the LPI's YouTube channel. Users will be able to watch the livestream on a mobile or Smart TV, via the YouTube app, using the link https://youtu.be/hYKvAYcPzAc.

The awards ceremony begins at 8:30pm UK GMT on Thursday 7 February 2019 but the livestream will open at 8:00pm GMT

The LPI's Head of Marketing, Giles Hearn, said: "This will be the second time we have livestreamed the Learning Awards, and we expect to build upon the success of the 2018 livestream which received over 2,600 views from around the globe. The Learning Awards 2019 continues to attract international entries - this year's submissions came from over 51 countries - so not everyone who is selected as a finalist will be able to make the trip to London. This is the next best thing to being at the Dorchester in person and a fantastic an opportunity to join in the celebrations wherever in the world they are." 

For anyone not joining the livestream, social media updates will be posted throughout the event via the LPI's Instagram and Twitter accounts using the hashtag #learningawards
