Cuttlefish developed the Get Revising educational site in conjunction with Connect Publications, so we're very pleased to hear that it is on the final shortlist for the BETT Awards 2010 in the category "Tools for Learning and Teaching".
The BETT Awards is an annual scheme that highlights exemplar digital products intended for the education marketplace. The BETT Awards is produced by Emap Connect, the organisers of the largest educational technology show in the world – BETT. The BETT Awards is made possible by working in association with Becta, the Government's lead agency for ICT in education, and BESA, the trade association representing the educational supply industry.
We would like to wish all the best to our friends at Get Revising, good luck!

Our website for the RNIB College has been given the RNIB's prestigious 'See It Right' status for meeting rigorous accessibility standards. This standard seeks to ensure that web sites are fully usable by visually impaired internet users.
Websites with an RNIB accessible website logo are designed to be accessible for everyone. This includes people with sight problems, hearing, mobility and cognitive impairments as well as people with dial-up, older browsers or newer technologies such as mobiles and PDAs.
We believe that all websites can be made accessible, yours as well. For all websites accredited with 'See It Right' check the RNIB Accessible Website Directory.

We were very pleased to hear that the Charnwood Borough Council website has been assessed in the 2009 SOCITM Better Connected survey as being one of only 13 Shire District Councils in England to have a website with "Excellent Content".
We moved Charnwood over to a new version of our Content Management System last year and it's great to see that the hard work, both within the council and at Cuttlefish, has paid off Well done all.
