Red Rose Employer of the Year

This prestigious award acknowledges and celebrates businesses that go the extra mile and demonstrate their commitment to their employees. We are delighted to be recognised for being a great place to work through the Employer of the Year award.

The nasen Innovation Award for Technology

Scooping the top accolade for the Innovation Award for Technology, IDL was recognised for our commitment to developing technology that is used to promote inclusion for children and young people with SEND. Since the 1980s IDL has proven to support thousands of children and young people with dyslexia, dyscalculia & many other areas of SEND in the UK and overseas.

GESS Education Award

IDL’s specialist Maths resource was shortlisted for the SEN Resource/Equipment Supplier of the Year. IDL Numeracy was recognised for supporting pupils with dyscalculia and other special educational needs which impact their maths ability in a fun and engaging way. The GESS (Global Education Supplies and Solutions) Awards recognise and celebrate worldwide success in the education sector.

The Red Rose Innovation in Business Award

IDL Numeracy was announced as a finalist for the Innovation in Business Award at the Red Rose Awards 2019. This newly launched intervention programme was developed specifically to help school pupils with dyscalculia, and those struggling with maths. As sufferers of dyscalculia often have terrible maths anxiety, the product has been designed as a multi-sensory game to improve pupils’ maths ability in a fun and engaging way.

Teach Primary Maths Award

IDL Numeracy was awarded the 3* prize in Maths in the Teach Primary Awards. The judge stated “This is genuinely a maths support programme that recognises specific learning difficulties and addresses them via what I feel students will find enjoyable and interactive lessons.” Run by Teach Primary magazine, the Teach Primary awards help educators seek out the very best teaching resources to support their KS1 and KS2 pupils.

The National SEND Award

IDL Literacy was crowned the winner of the National Association of Special Educational Needs (nasen’s) Effective Technology/Resource Award. The judges agreed that the specialist dyslexia programme has effectively improved the lives of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities across the UK. The prestigious ceremony took place in London, with the award being presented by TV Personality Vanessa Feltz.
