Tigtag and Twig online resources are currently accessible via the Glow login and are used by schools across Scotland. These award-winning resources provide high-quality videos and accompanying learning materials for sciences, mathematics and social studies. They were procured by Education Scotland in July 2015. The contract was for one year initially with the possibility of a one year extension.
Education Scotland and Twig World have agreed to this one year extension which means that both Twig and Tigtag, and also TigTag Junior and Reach Out CPD, will continue to be available to state schools through Glow until 31st July 2017.
It will not be possible for Education Scotland to extend the contract further beyond this date.
Scotland Excel, the local authority procurement organisation, will include Education Software and Digital Content as an additional lot within their re-tender of their Education Materials framework with a start date of 1st April 2017. It will therefore be for local authorities to purchase digital content via this route in the future.
