LEO Learning is delighted to announce that its pioneering virtual campus for two of the NHS Leadership Academy’s programmes has been nominated for six international awards.
The award-winning virtual campus has been nominated for three E-Learning Age awards, two Training Journal awards and a Chief Learning Officer magazine Learning in Practice award.
The nominations are as follows:

The virtual campus, created by a KPMG-led consortium including LEO Learning, Manchester Business School, The University of Birmingham, Harvard, National Voices, Cumberlege Eden & Partners, Unspun and other partners, delivers the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and the Nye Bevan programmes to around 10,000 NHS leaders over three years, helping improve NHS leadership for better patient care.
The large-scale blended programme incorporates multi-device learning, video-based scenarios, performance support, assessments and an online portfolio set within an innovative virtual campus, along with face-to-face training sessions and residentials. Elizabeth Garrett Anderson participants graduate with a master’s degree in Healthcare Leadership, while participants in each Nye Bevan cohort, the first of which graduated in March 2015, receive an NHS Leadership Academy award in Executive Healthcare Leadership.
LEO Learning’s Chief Strategy Officer, Piers Lea, said: “I am delighted that the NHS Leadership Academy is being recognised with these six nominations. I believe that at the same time as helping with a fundamental shift in ‘patient-focused leadership’ at the NHS, these programmes prove that a sophisticated blend using a wide range of media and technologies can make a real difference to large numbers in a short space of time.”
The NHS Leadership Academy has already won a Brandon Hall award in the Best Use of Blended Learning category in 2014.
The Learning in Practice award results will be announced on 11th October, and the Training Journal award results will be announced at the awards ceremony on 25th November.
