Education Resource Awards 2011
The UK's most outstanding educational resources, suppliers, educators and institutions have been shortlisted for the Education Resource Awards (ERAs) 2011. Co-organised by the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA), the ERAs highlight the quality and diversity of educational products and resources, excellent educational establishments and the most inspiring members of the teaching profession, all working together to encourage the very best in education.
BESA, the British Educational Suppliers Association, is the trade association representing over 300 educational suppliers in the UK, including manufacturers and distributors of equipment, materials, books, consumables, furniture, technology, ICT hardware and digital-content related services to the education market.
Ray Barker, director of BESA, said: “Each year over 30 education professionals look for resources, organisations and teachers that make a real difference to education. By testing and identifying the best resources available to today’s schools and classrooms, schools can look to the finalists, and the soon-to-be-announced winners, as exemplary companies with practical products that are fit for purpose and provide real value for money.”

Ray Barker said: “At a time when schools are being given more freedom to use their professional judgement to organise learning as they see fit, the Education Resource Awards play an increasingly important role in helping to identify products of excellence. The Education Resource Awards are judged by an independent panel of education experts, all teaching and learning professionals, providing peace of mind to the UK’s teachers that the judging process is robust.”
Winners will be announced at the annual gala event at The Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham on Friday 18 March, the second evening of the Education Show 2011.
