To BETT Again!
It’s BETT again! The annual BETT (British Educational Training and Technology) is taking place at ExCeL London between 20 and 23rd January. As per tradition PC Werth will be attending the event for the 9th year in a row.
BETT is one the world’s leading learning technology shops and has been bringing innovation and inspiration to the education sector for over 30 years. With over 35,000 visitors expected this year, this is the must-go-to event of the year if you’re an education practitioner.
For the last couple of years PC Werth has been showing listening and hearing solutions which enhance pupils’ listening skills, attention and overall classroom performance. Moreover, the solutions are not only beneficial for children, but also for teachers who often struggle with vocal fatigue due to classroom and school acoustics. You can learn more on the minimum standards for sound and acoustic regulation at school from our blog on Acoustic Regulations on Sound in Education.

EAR Foundation at PC Werth Stand
Take the opportunity to talk with leading professionals from the Ear Foundation – one of the UK’s leading charities (link). Suffice to say, the Foundation holds a unique position in the UK. Founded in 1989 after bringing cochlear implants to children, it has become the services link that bridges the gap between the hospital clinics and the local community. Therefore the EAR Foundations is a perfect match for PC Werth which next year will be celebrating its 70th anniversary.
PC Werth will be joined by Diana Harbor, a dual qualified speech therapist and audiologist from education team and Sue Archbold, chief executive of the Ear Foundation. “It’s a privilege to have observed the dramatic changes in opportunities offered by today’s hearing technologies” says Sue Archbold. Diana, an education tutor at the Ear Foundation, is very pleased to be able to join PC Werth for this exciting conference and is looking forward to engaging with people around the work that the Ear Foundation does.
Also you will be able to talk to Zheng Yen Ng, research coordinator at The Ear Foundation who coordinates the SoundSpace website assisting those affected by hearing loss. “We are delighted and grateful for the opportunity to be able to join PC Werth at the BETT conference, and would like to invite anyone interested to come have a chat with us” says Zheng.
BETT starts on Wednesday (20th January) and for the 4 consecutive days you can learn about the latest classroom technologies and sound field systems which boost hearing and listening skills whenever used in mainstream or SEN education.
