SiyonaTech and NATS were presented with the ‘External Learning Solution of the Year’ Gold Award at the glitzy Learning Awards gala ceremony held at the London Hilton, Park Lane. A second SiyonaTech project was also shortlisted for a Learning Technologies Award.

The gold-winning Oceanic e-learning suite was developed to support the transformation of airspace over the Atlantic, with the award criteria setting out the standards:

The External Learning Solution of the Year Award is presented to a learning provider that has undertaken a major learning and development project or projects for a client that are innovative in concept and have produced demonstrable performance improvement and business impact for the client as well as evidence of value for money.

With the advent of real-time monitoring over the oceans, NATS had to undergo a large transformation in its technology and people practices responsible for supporting air traffic over the Atlantic. The mission critical operation had to be implemented with high precision within tight deadlines.

SiyonaTech worked closely with NATS to deliver a game changing e-learning solution that transformed how Air Traffic Control Officers (ATCOs) were trained to deal with the changes.

Delivered in phases to support the various rollouts, the programme met its goals while it also led to a change in culture towards learning within the organisation.

With this win, SiyonaTech’s award tally for 2019-20 totalled 14.
