Gold award for Howden Academy

Howden Academy has received a prestigious E-Learning Gold Award for Excellence

Howden Academy, an engineer training programme developed by GCU and Howden, has received a prestigious E-Learning Gold Award for ‘Excellence in the production of learning content - private sector’, in partnership with eCom Scotland.
The awards are run by e.learning age, the leading European magazine and website for e-learning users and for the e-learning industry.
Judges says: “The 2011 Awards have broken records in terms of entry numbers and have demonstrated the strength and depth of successful e-learning that is taking place across the globe. Despite the tough and uncertain conditions that persist for all sectors of the economy the fact remains that e-learning continues to flourish.”
Working in partnership, GCU and Howden launched Howden Academy in July 2008. The Academy combines Howden’s specialist engineering skills and experience with the teaching expertise and world-class leading facilities of GCU.
Training methods draw on traditional classroom work and e-learning supported by comprehensive notes and materials, delivered in manageable modules.
This award builds on the Glasgow Business Award for Excellence in Skills and Learning which the Academy won in 2009.
