Amy Ong wins award

Throughout December, users were given the opportunity to nominate their colleagues for UK User of The Year 2019. An award designed to identify and celebrate itslearning Super-Users.

An awards ceremony was held aboard the Sunborn Yacht Hotel during the annual itslearning Innovation Summit.

“We were inundated with nominations; it was amazing to see how hard our users work to improve and enhance the learning experience through itslearning. We have some innovative users who are using the platform in unusual ways to engage their learners.”

Giulio Grosso, UK Service and Business Management Director at itslearning
Nominees for UK User of the Year

Top three nominees for UK User of the Year Award


The nominations were narrowed down to the top three:

Amy Ong, Maths Teacher at St Paul’s Catholic School in Milton Keynes, nominated by the headteacher for her constant drive of the platform with pupils and parents, and for her work in implementing the platform across the school.

Adam Williams, Tutor at Hopwood Hall College in Middleton. He was nominated by a colleague who highlighted his innovative thinking when building his course, saying, “He has some really great ideas for ways to use the system. Even more impressive considering this is a system his area of Hopwood doesn’t really use, so it’s great he’s getting on board.”

Adam Brunink, Head of Creative Arts at Crookhorn College in Hampshire, nominated by Nehar Ullah, Account Manager at itslearning for his passion for the platform. “Adam is really good at driving the platform forward and encouraging usage across the school.”

The top three nominees were treated to a day aboard the Sunborn Yacht Hotel for the itslearning annual Innovation Summit, where they enjoyed a VIP lunch with global leaders and customers from all over the world. They were then joined by UK customers for the prize-giving ceremony.

“It’s important that we celebrate our users and give them the recognition for all their effort. It was nice to see our users coming together for the awards ceremony, it was a great opportunity for them to network and collaborate.”

Matthew Jordan, Sales and Marketing Manager, itslearning

Nominations will re-open again in November for UK User of the Year 2020.
