The organisation was named Education Technology Company of the Year at the India Education Awards 2018 – one of the most sought-after honours in the sub-continent’s education sector.

It was presented by Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan, chief guest at the event at the Taj Hotel, Bangalore, who handed out award certificates and trophies to title-holders in their respective categories.

The India Education Awards, held on 8 April, recognised around 80 achievers, innovators and leaders for demonstrating innovation, dedication, creativity and excellence in the sector.

The award to Skills Anytime was in recognition of its pioneering interactive English language learning in the state of Punjab, where it has already established its online solutions in some of the most prestigious organisations in Northern India, including Punjab College of Technical Education, Cordia Group and Punjab University.

It followed a rigorous three-month selection process, led by award organisers BlindWink.in, which included nomination, comprehensive market research, opinion survey, web research and selection by a distinguished panel of judges.

Accepting the award on behalf of Skills Anytime were the company’s general manager Ritesh Vashisht and software developer Deepak Verma.

Launched in 2015 and based in Chandigarh, Skills Anytime is the Indian arm of bksb – the UK’s leading provider of e-learning solutions for Functional Skills and GCSE, which are used by thousands of education-providers and millions of learners in the UK, Europe, Australia, South Africa and India.

Part of West Nottinghamshire College Group, its popular software packages have been specially-tailored for the Indian market and have been taken on board by the country’s Directorate of Secondary Education to upskill one million students and 18,000 teachers across all 1,500 Punjab state schools.
