Elephant Learning Designs, a digital learning company set up within Barnsley College, is celebrating after receiving recognition at the 2015 Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards ceremony.

Elephant Learning Designs was Highly Commended in the Digital and Creative Award category in front of over 500 guests at Barnsley Metrodome.

The category recognises organisations that have used digital and creative methods to further their business, demonstrating real creativity in building their brand and using digital communications to promote their business and communicate to customers.

Elephant Learning Designs was commended for showing innovative practice in designing and developing high quality digital content and creating a new eLearning design workforce. The company has invested in a dedicated unit of apprentices who provide an example for other organisations on investing in employees. This approach enables these apprentices to develop the technical and creative skills to create engaging and interactive digital materials for 21st century learning.

Daniel Scott, Learning Support Technologist at Barnsley College, said: “Being Highly Commended is excellent recognition for Elephant Learning Designs given the company was created just over a year ago and in competition with larger businesses. We plan to engage with businesses to develop and maximise digital learning opportunities going forwards.”

Elephant Learning Designs also won the Business Impact Award at Barnsley College’s Staff Star Awards in May 2015.
