The awards, now in their 14th year, recognise the ingenuity, creativity, passion and hard work of learning and development professionals from around the world. The awards’ categories allow a broad range of companies and individuals to participate and reflect the increasing diversity and scope in the L&D landscape.

Virtual College has been successfully shortlisted in all three categories which it has entered:

Best Training Partnership

Best Use of Technology in Learning

Best Commercial Programme

The three submissions are based around different aspects of a partnership project with Make UK to assist Fujitsu with a global safety culture change programme.

Fujitsu is a forward-thinking company whose prized asset is their people. They are passionate about health and safety, aiming to create a culture which is intolerant to accidents, incidents and poor safety performance. To achieve this, they had to standardise and digitise their Occupational Health and Safety training globally across their global workforce. They looked to Make UK and Virtual College to deliver this cultural change programme resulting in Fujitsu becoming the first organisation awarded the global ISO 45001 certification, a 46% reduction of annual lost working days and 200,000 completed hours of health and safety training to date.

The winners of the gold, silver and bronze awards will be announced at the Training Journal Awards gala dinner on the 3rd December.
