Outcomes briefing: UK EdTech at home and abroad

In 2019 the Departments for Education and International Trade published strategies that will shape the UK’s EdTech sector over the coming years. 

The Department for International Trade’s International Education Strategy pledged to boost exports in products and services so other countries can benefit from the UK education sector’s world-leading expertise. 

The Department for Education published the EdTech Strategy which made a number of commitments to assistive technology and inclusive practices in the classroom.  

On Tuesday 14th January 2020 Policy Connect gathered parliamentarians, government officials and assistive technology organisations to discuss the role of the assistive technology sector in the delivery of these overlapping strategies. The meeting took place at an important time for the EdTech agenda, coinciding with implementation of the government's domestic plans and the updating of the International Education Strategy. 

 This briefing presents the main findings from the session.
