The SWGfL Trophy Cabinet
14 June 2016
The SWGfL team have always worked on the premise that the products we develop should be self-sustaining; quality tools and services that schools will continue to use and invest time in because they are useful. Sustained and devolved use are the cornerstones of a successful edtech strategy so a huge component of our development process goes into quality assurance.
And occasionally, it’s really good to see that others agree with us and recognise it through an award. We love a trophy, we do!
We have been fortunate enough in the past to win BETT awards; ISPAs; Nominet and CIR Risk Management awards for BOOST and 360 Degree Safe. Recent months have seen our services nominated and win at the National Digital Safety Awards at internetmatters.org in a glitzy ceremony in London. Why not take a look at those services and products for yourself and see what all the fuss is about?
