The UKs leading online teaching business has won a major award at the highly prestigious BETT Awards held in London on 25th January. The annual awards encourage and recognise outstanding education sector resources, learning solutions and companies. The judges, who are all educational professionals, 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.

Tute teaches a broad range of curriculum subjects to children in Key Stage 2 and above, offering an additional resource to schools, and extra support to students at home. Pupils are taught in groups by a qualified teacher in a similar way to a traditional school setting, the main difference being that lessons are delivered via an online classroom: the Tute Learning Cloud.

CEO and Founder of Tute Sean Gardner:

“We are delighted that our innovative service has been recognized by our peers as a leading tool for Learning, Teaching and Assessment in the UK. We have always put outstanding teaching at the top of our agenda, and to win this award the first time we have entered is testament to the professional and outstanding team we have assembled at Tute.”

The BETT Awards represent a partnership between BESA, BETT show pioneers and the trade association representing the educational supply industry, and Acential Events, the organisers of the show.

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.”

“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.”

Tute has been providing schools with an innovative, simple and measurable way to raise attainment since 2013 and late last year launched Tute At Home, a service that uses the power of online technology to enable qualified, experienced teachers to teach small groups of children in live lessons whilst at home.
