Julia said: “Tech enables efficiencies, fosters inclusion, drives improvements & empowers school communities, it has to be a core business for schools
“Our schools are our best shot at closing the digital divide, and getting the internet infrastructure to learn the digital skills is key to this. Tech needs to be supported by skills to maximise the value of this investment.
“All staff supporting school use of IT should get the training and professional accreditation they need. Supporting tech workers in schools is critical to ensure the technology runs smoothly, the learning happens, and the skills develop.
“We work closely with our partners at the National Centre for Computing Education, Computing at School and Barefoot Computing, and we’re ready to work with the government to maximise the benefits of this investment.”
