This story is over

Lincolnshire company Provision Tracker has been shortlisted for the Teach Primary and Teach Secondary Awards 2019.

The Lincoln-based tech company has been shortlisted for the ‘SEND Resource’ categories for their technology, which helps schools support pupils with special educational needs and save schools time and money.

The Teach Primary and Teach Secondary Awards are annual events organised by two of the country’s leading education magazines. The awards celebrate new ideas, techniques and technology designed to make teachers lives easier and improve student progression and results – making the education system more efficient and effective for everybody.

Launched in 2018, Provision Tracker works with over 100 schools nationwide, providing groundbreaking contributions to the progression of children’s educational development.

It offers an easy, fast and accurate way for schools to plan resources and track the progress of pupils and has been designed specifically with SENCOs (special educational needs coordinators) in mind. Provision Tracker helps save teachers’ time and helps ensure pupils get the support they need to reach their potential.

Niki Wood, Partnerships Manager at Provision Tracker said: “We’re delighted to be shortlisted for the Teach awards this year, we work hard to help teachers as we understand the pressure they’re under to deliver results. If we can help make their lives a little easier, we’re doing our jobs properly.

“Provision and progress mapping can be a difficult and time consuming task for teachers – our technology is designed to make the process more straightforward. Schools that switch to Provision Tracker see a 62 per cent increase in confidence in mapping their provision.”

“At Provision Tracker, we’re passionate about supporting schools to give young people the academic and pastoral support they need. We empower schools with data-driven software that helps them evaluate and target provision and secure the funding they need.”

Progress for children with conditions such as autism can be hard to track and grading isn’t always an appropriate way to measure progress. Provision Tracker can help SENCOs and teachers measure and evidence progress in a child’s social and educational interactions and communications, both of which can be important signs of progress.

Niki Wood added: “It doesn’t get in the way of lesson planning or templating. It focuses mainly on following up and proving work and progress. It allows schools to give evidence of the work that is being done in ways that grading can’t always reveal. It shows more personal progression and qualitative details.”

The winners of The Teach Company Awards will be announced on October 4, 2019.
