Wi-Fi supplier Extricom has announced its first annual UK Education Grant Programme. The programme will offer £1m of grant awards to educational institutions throughout the UK.
Extricom said educational institutions are among the highest adopters of Wi-Fi technology, and it wants to make it easier for more of them to install it to aid learning.
The company has already seen its kit used for an attendance tracking system at Washwood Heath school in Birmingham, a closed circuit TV solution at Fleetwood College in Lancashire, and for student residence data connectivity at Rainford College and Bruton School for Girls.
Steve Northedge, general manager, EMEA, at Extricom, said, “The transformational power of wireless is undeniable, and by offering this education grant programme, Extricom is pleased to contribute to the adoption of such critical infrastructure technology by our nation’s schools.”
