STATonline, the complete school tracking system for life after levels was developed by a unique and exciting partnership, with the content being produced by the school leaders who created the STAT Sheffield assessment materials and the functionality and intuitive design developed by the BT Innovation award-winning designers of Educater.

The company’s team along with some of the STAT Steering Group members will be on-hand to demonstrate the system and show schools how using Educater can help to track & assess pupils, as well as streamline school processes.

BETT 2016 takes place at Excel London starting on Wednesday 20th January until Saturday 23rd January.
