Ed-Tech Demonstrator School


We are delighted to have been appointed to the DfE Ed-Tech Demonstrator Programme.  The Ed-Tech Demonstrator Programme includes a network of schools and colleges across England who exhibit effective practice in the use of technology.

The programme that launched in 2020 aims to boost peer-to-peer support on the effective use of technology and has now been tailored to help schools and colleges provide education remotely.

As a Demonstrator Trust we provide professional development, initially focused on supporting the effective delivery of remote teaching practices to schools and colleges across the country and bespoke technical consultancy.  The programme targets schools and colleges who are most in need of support; for example, those getting to grips with using a new online learning platform and those with the most disadvantaged learners.

Through this programme the Lionheart Educational Trust assists the DfE in supporting schools both in the local area and nationally to engage with their students through digital tools and online content.
