BlueSky - creators of BlueSky Education online performance management solution for schools shortlisted in BETT 2015 Awards – ICT Leadership & Management

Celebrations are afoot at BlueSky, creators of BlueSky Education, the leading online performance management, CPD and self-evaluation solution for schools, further to the company being named as a finalist in the BETT 2015 Awards – ICT Leadership and Management Category.  Considered by many as the most esteemed accolade in the industry, the BETT Awards provide a showcase of resources and companies to provide educators with the information, ideas and inspiration that are fundamental to the learning process.

The brainchild of managing director Denise Inwood, herself a former assistant head, BlueSky Education enables senior leadership teams to instantly access live data on the quality of teaching in their school or group of schools, demonstrate progress and impact by linking appraisal objectives and CPD to school priorities, and build capacity by creating standard reviews to target professional development and identify strengths. It also helps them to demonstrate a deep and accurate understanding of all staff performance by analysing lesson observation, CPD and appraisal information and to drive school improvement and standards through evidence-based self-evaluation and a culture of professional accountability.

Endorsed by the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) and the National Association of School Business Management (NASBM), BlueSky Education not only saves schools time and money, it drives improvement through robust self-evaluation processes and fair and transparent performance management.

Commenting on the shortlisting, Denise Inwood, said, "This is the first time we have entered the BETT Awards, so we were really thrilled to hear that we had been been selected as a finalist - particularly in the light of the 20% increase in entries this year reported by the judges.  We've had some really positive feedback from schools nationwide with 90% of all our new business coming as a direct result of user referrals.  Testimonials such as this from Matthew Hutt, Deputy Headteacher, Croesyceiliog School, have made our business what it is today - so thank you to all the senior leadership teams who have given us the thumbs up!”

Matthew Hutt said; “Our results are testament to the improvements we are making to the quality of teaching.”

The BETT 2015 Awards - which will be hosted by Josh Widdecombe, Star of Channel 4’s ‘The Last Leg’, ‘Mock the Week’ and ‘Live at the Apollo - are scheduled to take place on Wednesday 21st January 2015 at The Brewery, London EC1Y.
