IVUK’s partner, GP Bullhound, will be recognising mission-driven technology leaders through its new Tech4Good award at the annual Investor Allstars awards ceremony in London.
A deep understanding of education coupled with expertise in technology adoption and technical skills has made Learning Possibilities an established provider of learning management systems in educational settings. As the first company to build a multi-tenanted, cloud based learning platform on Microsoft technology, founder Dr Mehool Sanghrajka says ‘Learning Possibilities is an extraordinary business that has achieved a great deal over a short period. Our platform, LP+, was the first SharePoint cloud based learning platform in 2004, and it is now the largest.’ Learning Possibilities encourages collaboration to improve the lives of children. It engages with schools, parents and other stakeholders, delivering tailored teaching solutions for learning and providing digital skills for future employment.
The company in partnership with Microsoft, is the national provider of LMS (Learning Management Systems) to all schools in Wales.
Passionate about delivering the best learning technologies, many of the Learning Possibilities staff have been with the company since its inception and are highly experienced in education and technology. Professor Stephen Heppell, chairman of Learning Possibilities, believes that with access to the online cloud the ‘structures and strictures of education will be swept aside by the engagement, seduction, delight, passion and astonishment of a new learning world’.
With offices in London and the Middle East and strong working relationships with governments and education agencies around the world, Learning Possibilities has a truly global outlook. Guaranteeing UK data sovereignty they offer bi-lingual platforms and create secure, customisable cloud-based learning platforms in the UK and beyond. Staying true to their philosophy of social impact along with financial sustainability, Learning Possibilities believes the partnership with Impact Ventures brings ‘an incredible value to social enterprises in their passion to create a social return’.
