We are incredibly proud to announce that the Humanitarian Leadership Academy and Save the Children UK won three bronze awards at the Learning Technologies Awards last night!


Field Managers In Emergencies, Learning & Development (FIELD) Programme 🏆🏆

The FIELD Programme, created by Save the Children UK and World Vision International is a ground-breaking, free capacity strengthening programme for mid-level field managers working in humanitarian response. The FIELD Programme won two bronze awards: ‘Excellence in the Design of Learning Content – Public & Non-profit Sector’ and ‘Best Online Distance Learning Programme’.

What the judges said:

“Superb design of the platform and content. Bright, clean, easy to navigate and reflecting the diversity of the target audience perfectly. The use of user created content to support other learners was great to see. Great collaboration and ingenuity shown to deal with issues thrown up on site.”

Safeguarding VR 🏆

Created in partnership with BODYSWAPS, Safeguarding VR is a 20-minutes real-time interactive learning experience developed to train aid workers on how to handle conversations with survivors of safeguarding incidents. Safeguarding VR won one bronze award for ‘Most Innovative New Learning Technologies Product’.

What the judges said:

“We see a lot of VR in this category, but few with the emotive impact of Bodyswaps. Building empathy really is a great use of VR and using it to tackle such a sensitive subject (sexual misconduct in charities and NGOs) is highly impactful. Bodyswaps literally puts you in another person’s shoes and allows you to see the impact your unconscious body language and tone can have in a sensitive conversation. The judges can see this project doing a lot of good.”
