Matt Horsup, head of sales and marketing at Itineris, said: "This award is a testament to the hard work and creativity both itineris and Oaklands College put into the project.
Key to its success was to use students as part of the innovative design and development process. This insight combined with our digital marketing skills
allowed us to create a strategy that centred on maximising the website as an agile marketing tool as well as course selection and fulfilment."
