Get fully-funded support to get set up on Google for Education through the DFE's Platform Provisioning Programme!

Earlier this year, the Department for Education launched a fully-funded programme to deploy remote learning for schools with the use of a digital platform for teaching. 

As an official DfE approved Platform Provisioning Partner and Google Education Partner in the UK, Vital York can help you get set up with G Suite for Education, which includes Google Classroom. We will also make sure you get full training.

With Google for Education and G Suite, students and teachers can take collaboration to the next level, even if they are not together in school.​

The scheme is open until March 2021, but you must get your application in by the end of this year.

What funding is available?


Eligible Secondary Schools will receive £2,000.


Eligible Primary Schools will receive £1,500.


Funding for academies in trusts is capped at £1,000 per school.


Special and all-through schools are individually assessed.


Who is eligible? 

You're eligible for this programme if you don't currently have a digital education platform or are using G Suite but are not yet set up to assign work and communicate with students.
