'Whizz Education's Maths Teachers' Resource, written by Hilary and Steve, won the Maths Key Stages 1 and 2 category of the BETT Awards 2006. The resource, a suite of Maths ICT teaching tools designed to aid whole class, small group or one-to-one teaching, beat off stiff competition from large multinational organisations to win this prestigious education industry award. With double the number of entries in 2006 compared with 2005, we are delighted to have an acknowledgement of our commitment to providing the very best learning tools for children across the UK.'

In 2003 Steve Mills and Hilary Koll won both the 'Secondary Numeracy' category and the 'Overall Excellence' prize at the Basic Skills Book Awards for materials designed to improve numeracy skills.

The Awards, arranged by the Basic Skills Agency and the Welsh Books Council, formed part of the Welsh Assembly Government's National Basic Skills Strategy.

The Jury was chaired by Glenys Kinnock MEP, who said of the winning entry 'Fast Forward Maths' by Hilary Koll and Steve Mills:

"There was a remarkable level of consensus amongst us about the short- listing and about the choice of winner. We were fortunate that, around the table, we benefited from the presence of such a committee of expert individuals. This was because in our choice of winners we felt we wanted to aim very high indeed - and to set the standard for the future. When it came to selecting the overall Excellence Award winner from amongst all the winners we had identified there was complete agreement about the choice."
