Mindful Education, a London-based education technology company, took home the Study Resource of the Year award at this year’s PQ Awards 2019, held on Tuesday 26 February.
The PQ Awards have been a fixture in the accountancy industry calendar for over 15 years. Hosted in London’s West End, the awards bring the sector together to celebrate the successes of part-qualified accountants, and those that help them achieve their goals.
The Study Resource of the Year award highlights organisations who create outstanding learning content and resources. The shortlist for this year’s award included Kaplan Financial, the London School of Business and Finance, and BPP Publishing.
Judges for the award cited the impressive pass, merit and distinction rates achieved by colleges who use Mindful Education’s accounting solutions, as well as how Mindful Education were making flexible study possible for learners.
Mark Mckenna, Managing Director, said: “Both learners and employers are increasingly asking for high-quality, flexible courses that provide the knowledge and skills required to progress in the workplace.
Start-up education companies like us have a vital role to play in this so we are thrilled to have been recognised.”
Graham Hambly, Editor of PQ Magazine, commented: “Mindful Education was shortlisted last year and goes one better in 2019.
The judges were impressed how their solution reduces in-class time by 60%, and recognised the impact Mindful Education has made in the sector since 2017. They felt this is a product that works for both learners and colleges.”.
