When is it: The winners will be announced at the Bett Awards dinner on Wednesday 30 January, 2013 at the brand-new Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, Tower Bridge, London.
What is it: The Bett Awards are considered to be the most prestigious in the education sector, and are committed to celebrating a distinctive and diverse digital education resources market that meets the needs of the education system. Every year the judges, comprised of leading education sector stakeholders, look for
organisations and products that show a clear understanding of the sector and its needs. Caroline Wright, director of BESA and chair of judging, adds; “Despite schools now realising that they do have strong available budgets, teachers are becoming more shrewd in assessing the aptness of products for their specific needs. Products therefore need to be of the highest standard to ensure that, aside from the initial purchase price, the total cost of ownership is low. This is what the judges have identified; products that offer the highest quality and are fit for purpose. These Bett Award finalists are certainly companies that schools can safely consider to be amongst the best available.”
