Closure of the Becta website on 31 January 2011

Becta's website will close on 31 January 2011, ahead of the organisation's closure in March.

Becta adopts open government licence in advance of its website closure

Becta’s website will close on 31 January 2011, ahead of the organisation’s closure in March. The Becta website will be captured on the National Archives although some features and functionality will no longer be available. There is advice available to organisations or individuals who have links pointing to our website from their own. To ensure the educational community benefits from being able to re-use Becta materials, Becta has now adopted the Open Government licence (OGL). This ensures that stakeholders and website visitors will be able to benefit from the resources open for re-use under this licence.

Continuation of online improvement frameworks

The self-review framework, which supports school improvement through the effective use of technology, will now transfer to the Department for Education (DfE) who will maintain this after Becta’s closure.

The online benchmarking and improvement tool for the FE and Skills sector, Generator will also continue.
