Arden University highly commended at Digital Education Awards

Arden University’s PGCert in Neurodiversity has been highly commended in the New Digital Course of the Year category at the annual Digital Education Awards.

In a joint bid from the university’s School of Psychology and Digital Learning team, the course was celebrated for the way in which it uses digital tools to support schools and colleges with an inclusive, accessible education.

The award was the highlight of a busy evening for Arden. Alongside the commendation, the university was also shortlisted on three other occasions. These shortlistings were:

  • Our School of Investigation, Security and Defence's Virtual Crime World was shortlisted for Adult Home Learning Product of the Year
  • Our Digital Learning Team were shortlisted for Digital Education Team of the Year
  • Our Senior Leader Apprenticeship with NHS Leadership Academy Rosalind Franklin was also shortlisted for New Digital Course of the Year

Stuart Allan, Arden University’s Director of Digital Learning, said: "The Digital Education Awards attract hundreds of applications from across the world each year, so it's a great achievement for the PgCert in Neurodiversity to receive this recognition. The School of Psychology and the Digital Learning Team have worked together brilliantly to develop a programme that we believe sets the standard for inclusion and digital accessibility." 

Gail Steptoe Warren, Head of the School of Psychology, added: “I am delighted that Arden University has been highly commended in the Digital Education awards for its PG Cert in Neurodiversity.  It is an incredible programme which has been developed strategically to support our belief that education should be accessible to all.
