New Remote Education Support for Schools, Colleges and Teachers (England)

Additional remote education support to help children learn at home if they have to self-isolate is being made available to Schools, colleges, teachers and pupils across England.

As part of the package, the Government will provide an additional 100,000 laptops to support children most in need if they are required to learn at home. Over £1 million of additional funding will also be invested to expand the EdTech Demonstrator programme which provides peer-to-peer support to help teachers and support workers use technology as effectively as possible to enhance the learning given to pupils at home.

The package will also provide eighty grants of £1,000 to Further Education providers, providing additional training and support for mentors and coaches specialising in assisting teachers with remote education.
