EDTECH Demonstrator Programme

A free national peer-led network of demonstrators helping schools & colleges
in England to develop and improve their digital strategies

Welcome to the EdTech Demonstrator Programme


The EdTech Demonstrator Programme was developed by the Department for Education to ensure schools and colleges across England could access free, expert advice on educational technology. The programme launched shortly before the Covid19 pandemic enforced an extended period of remote teaching and learning in the Spring of 2020. 

The programme is now entering its second year and has evolved from crisis response to offer support to schools and colleges in developing digital strategies which make effective use of technology to enhance teaching and learning.  

A national event on 25th May 2021 will provide further information on the importance of digital strategy in addressing the educational challenges of the next few years. 

About The Programme

Children learning using tablet devices

In 2020-21, 4,000 schools and colleges across England benefitted from support, with over 200,000 classroom staff and 2 million learners having been helped to implement and access remote learning. We are ambitious to match this impact in 2021-22. The EdTech Demonstrator Programme provides peer-led support delivered by experts who are teaching and leading in recognisable contexts. 

The network of 43 demonstrators is spread across England and schools and colleges are welcome to work with their choice of demonstrator, based either on geography or the specialist nature of the support required.
