Digital Poverty Alliance, Barclays and Intel to support education

The Digital Poverty Alliance, alongside Barclays and Intel, have started to roll out its second stage of Tech4Teachers, a new project which provides laptops to teachers to improve the quality of teaching at schools across the UK.

Paul Finnis, CEO of the Digital Poverty Alliance and the Learning Foundation, said: “How can we support children to learn how to use devices and develop digital skills if their teachers don’t have suitable technology to teach them?”

This stage of the campaign has started to connect teachers who lack adequate online access with 550 new devices, to enable them to better support over 20,000 school children in the most disadvantaged communities. Funding for the programme will be provided by flagship sponsors Barclays and Intel.

This second stage builds upon the first phase of the Tech4Teachers programme in 2021, which saw Currys provide 1,000 laptops for teachers across the UK.
