R - Learning organisation of the year 

Cognassist

1 in 5 UK learners leave education with no basic qualifications. It’s a scary statistic.

As many as 1 in 3 learners are neurodiverse. Supporting these learners brings some challenges:

  1. Accurately identifying learning needs.
  2. Supporting individuals to succeed throughout their education.
  3. Accessing funding to provide support.

That’s why we built Cognassist.

Cognassist is a cloud-based #EdTech SaaS platform focused on achieving that goal: identifying neurodiversity in under 30 minutes, providing personalised learner journeys, and delivering applied cognitive science and neurodiversity training.

To help every learner reach their full potential and ensure no learner is left behind

Growth Engineering

Growth Engineering uses a research-backed engagement focus to produce meaningful results through our suite of learning technology solutions.

We’ve made some incredible progress over the last year, including exciting new features, new clients, an expanded team and bucketloads of customer success stories.

We’re extremely proud of the support we’ve provided during the pandemic. For instance, a Fortune 500 cosmetics company could link $174m (HKD) of sales to a training campaign delivered solely through our solution.

We believe that our unrivalled support and focus on engagement and innovation make us the learning organisation of the year.

Ufi Voctech Trust

2020, with all its challenges, provided an opportunity for vocational education funding charity Ufi VocTech Trust to consolidate all we have achieved and bring our practical experience of what works to a much wider audience, that had a pressing need to adopt digital learning for the first time.

Through our grant funding and partnership work, we believe we cocreated ‘exceptional results’ to enable learners across the UK to continue with their vocational studies and to support learning professionals who needed to rapidly adapt their practice.
