The Department for Education (DfE) has just concluded its second wave of funding, where schools could apply to become members of it’s EdTech Demonstrators Programme. The purpose of this programme is to help schools and colleges access training and advice on remote teaching during the coronavirus outbreaks or future lockdowns.

King’s Leadership Academy is very pleased to share with you that we have been selected as one of eighteen schools to be added to the programme to offer support. Since opening in 2012, we have operated a one-to-one device scheme for all our students and staff, this has allowed us to develop proficiency in digital systems. Alongside that, we’ve been able to finely tune our systems around the Google Suite of resources to facilitate cloud based learning. This experience places us in a position to support schools where digital learning is already established or those about to embark on their journey.

The EdTech Demonstrator Programme is funded fully by the DfE and working alongside the London Grid for Learning (LGfL) we are now able to offer a range of resources and guidance to other schools. Namely, written guides and policies, online webinars, as well as video-conferencing training for groups and individuals schools. With a focus on improving remote learning for children across the country and supporting social mobility for the most disadvantaged children.

You can find out more information about our school and our history working with technology here. If you would like to work with us in pushing your remote learning forwards, we’d love to hear from you. In order to register your interest, please visit the LGfL website and register your interest. The LGfL will then liaise with us as a Demonstrator School and we will be in touch in the near future.

We look forward to working with you.
