Henley Business School has won the JISC VC Partnership Award for work with schools and other universities through videoconferencing, presented at the BETT Conference on 25 January 2017.

JISC are a UK higher education, further education and skills sector not-for-profit organisation for digital services and solutions. The award commends the use of videoconferencing to provide opportunities to schools which would not otherwise be possible in their own classroom.

The award was presented at the British Educational Training & Technology (BETT) show at London Excel and collected by Associate Professor Joe Doak, who was involved in some of the sessions.

The business school’s outreach programme ranged from Dr Simone Varotto’s Brexit challenge – in which schools across the UK were asked to devise their own Brexit strategies – to career planning insights with Associate Professor Joe Doak and Professor Gavin Parker.

Programme Area Manager and organiser for the outreach programme Jacqui Fletcher comments:

"We are very happy to have won this award and grateful to our technology partners Channel Talent for the nomination. At Henley we pride ourselves on the work our academics do engaging with students from all backgrounds, and using technology to do so allows us to reach a wider audience than we ever would have before."
