Schools can now apply for Department for Education-funded
support to get set up on G Suite for Education

From April 24th, schools and responsible bodies can apply for Department for Education-funded support to get set up on one of two free-to-use digital education platforms: G Suite for Education and Office 365 Education. As an accredited Google for Education partner and provider of this support, we’re here to help.

Why G Suite for Education?

G Suite for Education contains a free set of productivity tools for classroom collaboration. Accessible from any device, it is used by over 120 million users worldwide and enables teachers and students to continue teaching and learning remotely. Google Classroom helps teachers to organise learning activity, hand out and mark assessments as well as providing structure for students learning at home. Teach From Home provides teachers with easy-to-use resources to get started with G Suite and how the tools can be used during this time.

To find out more about whether G Suite for Education is right for your school, Google is running some sessions which can help. Sign up here to join their virtual office hours.

Is your school eligible for funding?

Schools that do not currently have a digital education platform are eligible for funding. Schools that already have G Suite, but are not yet set up to assign work and communicate with pupils, are also eligible.

What's included?

The funding will cover the cost of service to carry out:

  • End-to-end set up of G Suite for Education
  • Integration with your Management Information Systems to provision Google Classroom
  • Core security settings to support remote education
  • Creation of a central “remote learning hub” site for your school
  • Handover training for your school’s staff

We can help to carry out a safe, secure and professional set up of your platform, including sharing best practices on domain settings and feature enablement.

If you would like to apply for funding you will need to visit the digital education platform hub to get the ball rolling. You have the option to select Getech as your preferred supplier on the Deployment Support Request Form.
