The Department for Education has launched a Government-funded initiative to help schools move to remote learning digital platforms. Computer Talk is one of several Google Partners assisting with this initiative, which will help students continue to learn from home during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Is your school eligible? The scheme is designed to prioritise those schools without a Microsoft Office 365 or Google for Education learning platform. You will be eligible if you are:
- a Primary school in England without an Office 365 or G Suite learning platform. You will be eligible for funding to develop a digital education platform for a fixed cost of £1,500.
- a Secondary school in England without an Office 365 or G Suite learning platform. You will be eligible for funding to develop a digital education platform for a fixed cost of £2,000.
- a school in England in a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) of up to 10 schools. You will be eligible for £1,000 per school to create a MAT-wide approach (a single platform for the whole MAT).
Schools that already have G Suite but are not yet set up to assign work and communicate with pupils, are also eligible.
