Coinciding with Bett, the world’s leading event for learning technology, the awards are considered the highest accolade in the industry.
The Bett Awards play a key role in identifying and rewarding excellence in education trade. The winning organisations were announced at the Bett Awards dinner in London on Wednesday 24 January.
The panel of judges comprised of education experts, who evaluate each entry based on its appreciation of the sector’s needs and commitment to supporting education standards, said, “We felt that bksb demonstrated significant revenue growth underpinned by effective customer support and events with impact. They have clearly established themselves as the trusted brand in the functional skills and GCSE eLearning market.”
Considered the most influential accolade in the industry, the annual Bett Awards are delivered in partnership between BESA, the trade association representing the educational suppliers industry, and Ascential Events, the organisers of Bett, the world’s leading edtech show. The awards highlight outstanding education sector products, learning solutions, companies and people.
Patrick Hayes, director of BESA and chair of judges for the Bett Awards, said: “This year we had more entries than ever before from all over the globe, and our panel of esteemed judges had an incredibly hard time to select the winners – even harder than usual!
“To be shortlisted is a great achievement in itself, but to be crowned a Bett Awards winner at such a time of global EdTech innovation is something to truly celebrate. On behalf of all the judges, I would like to congratulate bksb – their teams should be extremely proud of receiving an accolade that is recognised across the world.”
Simon Presswell, managing director, Bett Global Series at Ascential Events added: “The education sector growth in the UK outpaces that in many other countries, and some of the most exciting and effective innovation is in education-based technology. As exports of our expertise continue to increase, the Bett Awards play an increasingly vital role in helping educators to identify the very best products, services and people that are helping to transform education, not just in the UK but globally. I would like to congratulate the team at bksb for its constant determination to achieve excellence for education providers across the world.”
