The government is still funding expert technical support to help schools and colleges set up secure user accounts for Google and Microsoft’s education platforms.
Schools now have until Tuesday 30 November to apply for government-funded support to get set up on one of two digital education platforms: Google Workspace for Education or Microsoft Office 365 Education. Our
guidance provides more details on how to apply, advice on how schools can make the most of these platforms and how to choose the most appropriate platform.
Since April 2020, almost 7,000 schools have applied to get set up on a platform and over 2.34 million accounts have been created. When a school has access to a platform, not only will it save time, but they will also give staff and children the chance to
continue with their work and education whilst in the classroom and at home. If your school has not applied to the programme, and is still interested in the offer, please
apply before Tuesday 30 November.
