We are delighted to announce that the Schools & Academies Show and EdTech Summit have partnered with the EdTech Demonstrator Programme to bring a new feature to the show floor which will provide visitors with the chance to gain free, expert advice from a peer-led network of EdTech Demonstrators.

The EdTech Demonstrator Programme will be hosting a dedicated feature area which will include a stage for their demonstrators to provide insightful presentations and sessions about the benefits of the programme and how your school can get involved. Plus, there will be a separate 1-2-1 area where visitors can sit down with the Programme Team to learn more about the support available, the sign-up process using an ImpactEd diagnostic tool, and answer any questions about the programme.


The EdTech Demonstrator Programme was developed by the Department for Education to ensure publicly-funded schools and colleges across England could access free, expert advice on educational technology. The programme launched shortly before the Covid-19 pandemic enforced an extended period of remote teaching and learning in the Spring of 2020.

The programme is now in 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. You can access up to 30 hours of free support from a national network of demonstrators. Find out more about the programme here.
