Extra Funding for Remote Learning

The Department for Education has announced funding support for two free-to-use digital education platforms – G Suite for Education from Google and Office 365 Education by Microsoft. These platforms allow teaching and learning to continue at home whilst schools are closed. Schools with access to a digital education platform are able to:

  • Assign and assess work, providing feedback remotely
  • Communicate with staff, students and parents in real time, using written word, voice and video
  • Facilitate collaboration between groups of pupils and teachers

Schools that do not currently have a digital education platform are eligible for funding of up to £2,000. Schools that have already chosen a digital platform, but are not yet set up to assign work and communicate with pupils, are also eligible for support.

Strictly Education is a Google for Education partner, and we are proud to be one of the support providers added to the framework for schools to choose from if they have selected G Suite for Education as their digital platform.

If your school’s current IT support network is not a Google for Education Partner, and you have decided to invest in G Suite for Education, you can select Strictly Education as your partner of choice without compromising any existing arrangements.
