Link2ICT Supporting schools

link2ictBeLF are delighted to announce that Link2ICT will once again be supporting schools choosing to use BeLF (the Birmingham e-Learning Foundation) to help address the digital divide and re-imagine learning.

Substantial grants are now available to provide the CPD and professional services required to make a new 1:1 device scheme work. Like textbooks, pencils and paper, technology is likely to be ineffective in raising attainment and enriching the learning experience…unless there is appropriate guidance, intervention and planned use. That’s why Link2ICT is providing grants to help equip you to maximise the learning benefits when adopting a 1:1 device programme.

You will need to be quick though – the grants available are limited and on a first come, first served basis, and subject to certain criteria.

For more details of BeLF, see www.belf.org.uk. If your school is interested in adopting the BeLF process, and wish to access the Link2ICT grants available to support you in this, contact Link2ICT’s Senior Education Advisor – Bren Taylor
