3P Learning is a Sydney-based company, and is "globally recognised for its online education resources including Mathletics, IntoScience, Spellodrome and Reading Eggs".
The company’s programs cover "mathematics, spelling, literacy, reading and science", and proudly boasts it is "a global team of passionate education and technology gurus".
With more than 5.3 million students in more than 17,000 schools across the world using 3P Learning resources, which are designed by educators and educational technologists in partnership with schools and families, it’s no surprise to see the company receiving an award.
After all, with the company’s resources, which it says are "fully aligned with over a dozen international curricula, learning becomes fun – with independent learning encouraged and celebrated".
The Public Sector, Education Partner of the Year Award recognises a partner organisation that excels at providing innovative and unique services or solutions based on Microsoft technologies to education customers.

O’Flaherty said: “More than five million students in more than 17,000 schools across the world extend their knowledge in science, maths, literacy and spelling using 3P Learning resources. To be recognised as Microsoft’s Education Partner of the Year is a real testament to our mission – to transform lives through a love of learning.”
