Helping schools and colleges with support for remote education, powered by a national network of 48 Demonstrator Schools and Colleges and supported by a consortium of Delivery Partners. The programme was funded by the English Department for Education and during 2019-2020. It supported 4,000 schools and colleges across England - helping over 200,000 classroom staff and 2 million learners.

For the second year of the EdTech Demonstrator Programme the delivery partners will be the United Church Schools Trust (UCST), trading as United Learning. Please visit their website for more information and to request support from the programme.
