Schools Invited to Apply for Government Funding to go Digital

It has been well publicised that schools have been invited to apply for Department for Education funding support to set up one of two free-to-use digital education platforms – Google G Suite for Education and Microsoft Office 365 Education. Coronavirus has placed a spotlight on the ability these platforms have had in enabling schools and teachers to provide much needed remote learning, communication and support to their pupils.

Techs4Education has over ten years of experience as an IT support services and technology solutions provider and serves over 40 schools across the South and South West. We have deep expertise in implementing G Suite and Microsoft solutions to schools and attained Google Education Partner and Microsoft Gold Partner accreditation’s for our capabilities and high levels of service.

The use of these digital education platforms gives schools access to the very latest technology and education apps, enables greater class and pupil collaboration, increased flexibility and security that allows more effective remote learning and school management.

If you’d like to find out more about how we can help your school implement Google G Suite for Education or Microsoft Office 365 Education please get in contact. We would be delighted to carry out a ‘no obligation’ IT and comms audit of your school, as part of this process.

Our long-term goal is to change and increase how Technology is used in the classroom and want to work alongside teachers and school budgets to deliver this transition.


Schools that don’t currently have a digital education platform are eligible for funding and schools that already have Office 365 Education or G Suite, but are not yet set up to assign work and communicate with pupils, are also eligible. Click here for more details.
