London, England (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
International online educators, Whizz Education, were awarded the coveted title of ‘Education Exporter of the Year’ at the Education Resources Awards (ERAs) on Friday night. The gala event took place on the second evening of The Education Show, at The National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham and was attended by educationalists from across the world.
The judges, an independent panel of experienced educational professionals, felt that Whizz Education and its online maths tutoring service, Maths-Whizz, continued to match the changing needs of schools across the world, working towards the Millennium Development Goal of Education for All.
Maths-Whizz is used by thousands of 5-13 year olds in 8 countries, with major growth coming from the USA, the Middle East and Russia. Responding to the great news, Madeleine White, Head of Strategic Partnerships, Whizz Education, expresses her delight: “We are dedicated to promoting happiness in numbers and raising standards in Maths for five to 13 year olds across geographical barriers. We are also committed to working towards the MDG of Education for All, so receiving such a nod of approval from some of the UK's most renowned educationalists tells us that all our hard work is paying off. Successful products at the ERAs are those that ‘stand out from the crowd’ in terms of their ease of use and effectiveness in the learning environment. Winning Exporter of the Year is great testimony to the service that Maths-Whizz offers its users. We couldn’t be happier!”
The ERAs celebrate the resources, services and people that make a practical impact on learning and the day-to-day work of teachers in the classroom. They highlight the quality and diversity of educational products and resources, excellent educational establishments and the most dedicated members of the teaching profession and supplies industry. The Awards aim to encourage the raising of educational services and product standards throughout the industry and are recognised throughout the sector as the accolade of excellence.
