    Joseph, Just announced it and you beat me to it

    GPO Approved in the United Kingdom!



    Garritan Personal Ochestra has been approved by the
    United Kingdom Department for Education and Skills.

    The Secretary of State for Education for the United Kingdom has certfied GPO content making GPO available to UK schools. The UK Government has set aside substantial funds in the form of credits to spend on approved multimedia resources and schools can now apply those credits toward the purchase of Garritan Personal Orchestra!

    GPO has been certified suitable for UK National Curriculum in schools at Key Stage 3 (secondary school) and above, GCSE, A Level and into higher education related courses.

    This effectively makes GPO available to over 250,000 students in the UK. GPO is certified as being directly relevant to the music curriculum they are being taught. The UK Government has a special program to transform education by improving access to multimedia resources for all pupils. To help bring about this aim, the Government as set aside substantial funds in the form of ‘eLearning Credits’ which goes straight to all schools to spend on approved multimedia resources. Every school in the UK is entitled to these credits which can now go toward the purchase of Garritan Personal Orchestra! This is particularly helpful to schools who couldn't otherwise afford an orchestral library as a learning tool for their students.

    Joel Heatley of Time+Space Distribution stated, “Government funded schools can now start to purchase our products using eLearning Credits. We’re delighted that the first orchestral product to be passed eligible is the UK academic version of Garritan Personal Orchestra.”

    It is a difficult and arduous process to obtain this approval and took over a year to obtain certification. Many thanks to Time+Space, particularly their Education Co-ordinator Joel Heatley and Education Consultant Mark Mumford, and others that made this happen.
