Help with Technology
The Department for Education (DfE) is providing a range of support through its Get Help with Technology programme including help to get internet access.
The DfE is working in partnership with mobile network operators to help schools support disadvantaged pupils in years 3 to 11 who rely on a mobile internet connection when their face-to-face education is disrupted by coronavirus (COVID-19).
Disadvantaged families may be able to benefit from free increases to their mobile data if they’re a customer of either:
- Sky Mobile
- Tesco Mobile
- Virgin Mobile
More providers may join the scheme soon.
