The DfE and delivery partners have identified twenty schools and colleges to act as Demonstrator Schools which have demonstrated excellence in their use of technology to support teaching and learning and have the capacity to help others. There are plans to extend the reach of this programme over the coming weeks.

These schools and colleges represent a wide range of contexts, from rural to urban and primary to further education and include a number of Trusts with special needs provision. 

Advice and training will be available to some schools and colleges across the country which are most in need of support, for example those which have recently deployed a new online learning platform and those with the most disadvantaged learners.
