Project Synopsis - Activedition CMS

Following competitive tender GTCS chose the Activedition CMS to enable the organisation to manage website content and for dissemination of important information to its members and stakeholders. Activedition was selected on the basis of, ease of use, functionality, flexibility, and future-proofing. From a website delivery perspective usability and accessibility were and remain important factors.  

The organisation selected Activedition and C2 as a development partner on the basis that the platform could be extended to deliver of a range of eServices to transform the way that the organisation interacts with members.

Together, GTCS and C2 have worked through a continuous programme of development to enhance business processes and to improve, member registration processes, member recording & profiling, which is part of their remit for managing Teacher, Probationer Teacher and Student Placement accreditation programmes.

Using the Activedition CMS as the underlying web platform GTCS and C2 have delivered:-

 Custom Development includes:-

  • Probationer Profiles Accreditation System
  • Chartered Teacher Accreditation System
  • Integration with MTL SoladitaS Membership System

GTCS also use the Activedition eMessenger module for bulk emailing of newsletters to members.

The resulting solution delivers, efficency, time saving, accuracy and cost saving benefits.


"The thought of embarking on large complex web projects no longer fills me with the dread it once did. The guys (and girls) at C2 have a knack of understanding what we want and how we can achieve it, and their ability to grasp our requirements in the early stages of a project gives me confidence that it will be a success. It has been a pleasure working with them so far and we hope to continue this in the future."
