Thousands of schools to receive technical support to start using Google and Microsoft’s education platforms

We are proud to announce that Haptic Networks have been named amongst a small number of Cloud Service Providers to join a coalition forged between Google and Microsoft to support the Department for Education.

We’re offering expert technical support to access Google’s education platform G Suite, along with free training on how to use the resources most effectively, this will be available for schools immediately. This will include online resources, support getting set up, webinars and peer to peer support between schools.

Guidance for schools on choosing the right education platform to meet their needs will be hosted by The Key, including best practice case studies and myth busting. The guidance will walk schools through the key assets of both Google and Microsoft’s platforms and provide an option to register for Government-funded expert support in getting these platforms set up.
