Wales-based Educational Software Company Wins Prestigious Award


Wales-based education technology company EduKey has won the Best Company award at the prestigious 2019 Bett Awards.

The Bett Awards are a celebration of the inspiring creativity and innovation that can be found throughout technology for education. The winners are seen to have excelled in ICT provision and support for nurseries, schools, colleges and special schools alike with a clear focus on what works in the classroom.

The Edukey team attended the awards ceremony in London on January 23 and were delighted with their win.

“We are so proud to have achieved Bett Award Company of the Year,” said EduKey co-founder Duncan Wilson. “Our success is down to our great team who go the extra mile every day for the schools who use our software.”

EduKey, which is based in Fishguard, Pembrokeshire, produces innovative software solutions for teachers and schools. The company was founded by Duncan Wilson in 2010 and has grown to have over 50 employees, making it the major employer in the area. Its software includes Class Charts, which enables teachers to view and organise pupil data on easy-to-use seating plans, and Provision Map, which enables SENCOs and ALNCos to organise their SEN administration.

Duncan, a former teacher, joined forces with software developer Gintas Sasnauskas to create EduKey’s products and in 2016 the company was acquired by tes, fuelling significant growth.

“We’ve come a long way since founding the company and I’m looking forward to an exciting 2019,” said Duncan.
