WHAT IS CONNECT THE CLASSROOM?
Connect The Classroom from the Department for Education is a fully funded programme that aims to improve local switch and wireless infrastructure in schools across the UK.
When schools issue their students with laptops and tablets to enable a more diverse learning environment, connectivity and network security are essential. The DfE Connect The Classroom Scheme works to help hundreds of UK schools build an effective network Infrastructure for their students.
Over the next 3 years, there will be approximately £150M allocated to invest in modern, high-spec wireless and LAN infrastructure for thousands of eligible schools.
