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.”
