Educational institutions are best placed to make decisions on technology to support students. The 2019 strategy ‘Realising the potential of technology in education’ highlighted innovative uses of technology, such as Ask Ada by Bolton College.

The Department aims to ensure all schools have the right infrastructure to allow them to make the most of modern digital technology for all children and young people, including access to the high-quality tools provided by EdTech companies. The Department is also working to improve our digital and data services, automating processes to save time at every level of the system.

The Department will ensure that every young person and adult can access personalised careers information and advice online, by improving the National Careers Service digital service. Through the Careers & Enterprise Company, the Department will ensure that every secondary school and college in England has access to a Careers Hub, digital support (Compass+), Careers Leader training and the Enterprise Advisor Network, as recommended by the Augar Report.
