It has certainly been a week to remember for the Educater team after a hugely successful showing at this year’s BETT Show.
On Tuesday, January 23, our team took on the 190-mile trek to London Excel and set up for the largest education exhibition in Europe. Throughout the week, Educater staff were rushed off their feet as they engaged with the high volume of visitors to the stand and even managed to attract celebrities with the visit of The Gadget Show’s Jason Bradbury being a highlight.
The event saw the launch of Educater’s latest module School Reports which has been created to make report writing more personalised and less time consuming. Many attendees took up the opportunity to have a free demonstrations of the Educater system as well as discussing any ‘Life after Levels’ questions with members of STAT Sheffield, including STAT Sheffield Project lead Robbie McGrath, who had joined Educater staff on stand. In addition to this, Gill Goodwin and Georgie Ralphs from Helen Sanderson Associates were on hand to discuss one-page profiles and the Pupil Passport module, and teachers who currently used the system were on stand to give visitors an insight into their experiences.
The event also saw a proud moment for the Eduteam after our EHCP management tool SEND was named among the finalists for a BETT Award in the ICT Special Educational Needs solutions category.
Our Pencils to Paris competition was also a huge hit with the BETT public. In total, over 2,000 pencils were pulled out of our prize bin with many lucky winners now looking forward to receiving rewards such as nasen live tickets and Teach Primary subscriptions – one lucky winner can even look forward to a trip to Paris.
Educater would like to thank everyone who attended the BETT Show and took the time to visit our team on stand G150. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
