bett-awards-2017-all-winners.gifLeaders of innovation within the education sector battled it out to be crowned the winners at a prestigious awards ceremony last night. 

The winners of this year’s Bett Awards were announced last night in a glittering awards dinner held at The Tobacco Dock in London. 

The annual awards encourage and recognise outstanding education sector resources, learning solutions and companies.

Each entry is judged by a panel of educational professionals, who look for what works in the classroom or the school setting in terms of design, cost-effectiveness, support of higher order thinking skills and effective learning and teaching styles. 

Patrick Hayes, director of BESA and chair of judges for the Bett Awards said: “If you’re looking for evidence that the UK EdTech sector is world-leading, look no further than the fantastically innovative winners of the Bett Awards 2017. Our esteemed judging panel of educationalists faced a huge task in deciding which of the hundreds of entries should win or be highly commended.”

“Well done to all the winners. With more outstanding entrants than ever before, it is a remarkable achievement. The global reputation of the Bett Awards means these companies - indeed all the finalists - have an honour that is recognised and respected by educators across the world.”

Rachel Brodie, portfolio director at Ascential Events added: “What makes these Awards different is that they focus on the resources, services and the people that really make an impact on learning and the day-to-day work of the teachers in the classroom. 

“I would like to congratulate all the winners of this year’s Bett Awards; their constant determination to achieve excellence in design, delivery and support helps to ensure that the outcomes for students across the world are the very best.”
