Local authorities

Becta provides advice and guidance to local authorities to support and encourage schools to improve learning with ICT. We do this by providing information and tools for whole school improvement and best value procurement.

Learning opportunities should be available to all, no matter what the circumstances. This means understanding learners' needs and extending learning beyond your school.
