Gove spares Home Access funds.

BATA Logo

A month ago Martin Littler wrote a letter to Michael Gove MP, the Education Secretary, in his capacity as Chair of the British Assistive Technology Association (BATA). He asked him to spare the final tranche of funding of the for the Home Access Scheme – this is the money earmarked for learners with Special Needs who face the greatest challenges in getting online.

Result! Michael Gove has just replied guaranteeing that these learners will be included. This is remarkable given the threatened 25% cuts in his Department’s budget.

This is an early win for BATA whose first aim is to ensure that learners who need special help are included in all future government ICT initiatives.
