SCR Tracker wins Highly Commended Award at Bett Awards 2020

by Julia Nielsen

As finalists in the "Leadership and Management Solutions" category this year, we at SCR Tracker were so excited to be attending the Bett Awards 2020.

We arrived and were greeted upon arrival with a glass of champagne, and began to mingle with the other guests. Some had been nominated consecutively year after year, and others were first timers like us. It was great to hear from guests who had travelled far for the evening, and to hear from people who had attended this year's popular Bett Show earlier the same day.

During the dinner we were entertained by comedian Sally Phillips, and enjoyed meeting new acquaintances on our table.  We ate good food and heard about each other's experiences within the education sector, ranging from the challenges of working for a £30bn company to those working for a young startup based up North.

The Awards Ceremony began and the Impact Award was up first. One of the shortlisted organisations was nominated for, amongst other things, using digital technology to improve their safeguarding, and they use our single central record software to do this! We waited with bated breath.

And the winner is.... Northern Education Trust! We were beyond excited and cheered loudly. It's great to see our clients recognised for their hard work, and we are proud to be working with each and every one of our amazing organisations to help them improve their safeguarding practices.

The time came for our category 'Leadership and Management Solutions', where we learned that SCR Tracker had been awarded 'Highly Commended' by the Bett Show Judges! We were ecstatic! To be up against so many incredible finalists (most much larger than ourselves!), we were so thrilled to be recognised for our brilliant software.

The Bett Awards Judges commented that SCR Tracker "demonstrated an entrepreneurial approach, they spotted an opportunity and created a solution which helps schools to fulfil their legal obligation in their core function of safeguarding young people."
