We’re delighted to announce that Charanga’s online platform has been shortlisted for a Bett Award for a fifth time.

The Musical School programme, which faces stiff competition in the Primary Content category, was further enhanced in September with the release of Yumu – a new area of the platform dedicated to supporting students’ music-making between lessons. Teachers have set up over 50,000 students with Yumu accounts since its launch.

Catering for pupils of all ages and abilities, teachers can use Yumu to set assignments for their students using their own favourite resources, exercises and pieces, or Charanga’s. Pupils can also choose from a range of ready-made learning packages to help stimulate and grow their interest in specific areas of learning or musical activity. 

SEND CREATE was also singled out in our award submission – a resource enabling teachers working in mainstream, international and special schools to provide top-quality creative learning for young people with special educational needs and disabilities using iPads.

Complete with in-depth videos and planning support, SEND CREATE works across the whole spectrum. Children’s responses to the resource so far have been unanimously positive and deeply heart-warming. 

Bett, the first industry show of the year in the education technology landscape, attracts delegates from over 146 countries. More than 800 leading companies, 100+ EdTech startups and over 34,000 attendees will come together to celebrate, find inspiration and discuss the future of education, as well as the role technology can play in “enabling educators and learners to thrive.”
