DfE Platform Provisioning Programme

Fri 24 April, 2020

From 24 April, schools and responsible bodies can apply for Department for Education-funded support to get set up on one of two free-to-use digital education platforms: G Suite for Education and Office 365 Education.

The criteria is that if you don't have pupils set up in Office 365 or G Suite you are eligible. Soft Egg has partnered with Google to work on this programme alongside the DfE, and we are offering this to all eligible schools in England. Please complete the form below and your request for a grant will be looked at within 48 hours by Google on behalf of the DFE and passed to us for implementation.
