Strategic Partnerships for Digital Education Readiness

School Education, VET or Higher Education* organisations

This funding can help your organisation to:

  • Use digital tools and methods to deliver quality and inclusive education through online or virtual means – this can include blended teaching, training and learning
  • Help learners, teachers and trainers adapt to online or distance learning
  • Teach and promote safer and more responsible use of digital technology
  • Explore how best to incorporate digital online technology into subject-specific teaching, training and learning, including work-based learning.

These Partnerships should ultimately help organisations manage the challenges of the sudden shift to online, distance and blended learning; support teachers and trainers to develop digital competences; and safeguard the inclusive nature of digital learning opportunities.
