Edtech charity LGfL is celebrating having won for the second year running Supplier of Year: Not for Profit in the Education Resources Awards (ERA). The judges selected LGfL as the winner in recognition of its social mission to advance education through digital innovation and its delivery of circa £9M in savings and benefits to schools per annum. One of LGfL’s most notable initiatives is its Pledge 2020 project to supercharge connectivity across its 3000-strong consortium of UK member schools by the end of 2020, enabling them to use cloud computing, 4K streaming and virtual reality in the classroom.
The Education Resources Awards are organised by The British Suppliers Association (BESA) and Brilliant Marketing Solutions and are recognised throughout the education sector as an accolade of excellence. This year’s awards ceremony was streamed online for all finalists and winners to enjoy their achievements safely and responsibly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
EdTech Top 50 mover and shaker LGfL’s mission is to energise teaching and learning, improve educational outcomes for its 3,000 member schools, keep its 1.2 million children safe online, tackle inequality, promote wellbeing and help its community harness the power and promise of edtech.
