DfE – Connect the Classroom Program

Access education-focused wireless networking solutions

Connect the Classroom is a program funded by the Department for Education (DfE) that aims to help schools across the country to access an effective and comprehensive, education-focused wireless networking solution.

This funding is designed to enable a modern and robust network architecture to enable connectivity for staff, students and visitors, delivering the right learning experience.

Connectivity in the classroom is paramount to enable today’s learning environments and SCC partners with a range of market leading technology providers to enable this.

We will provide a free consultation to guide you through every step of the process.


We’ll help you design the new network based on your requirements, take the time to review your specific requirements and incorporate these into the design. Aspects such as Local Area Networking, Wireless Networking and Network Security will be reviewed to ensure that the solution is secure and then provide a proposal to cover every element of the required solution.


If cabling is required to enable the new solution, we will be able to undertake this work for you whilst minimising disruption.

Wireless Site Surveys

We can survey your site to ensure that you are getting the right wireless connectivity, not only in buildings, but also any outside areas within the school. This will ensure that users can connect and get the right experience from day one.


Our dedicated, in-house team will implement the new solution for you, physically installing all the equipment and configuring it as per the agreed design. Testing of the solution will also be provided to ensure that it works from day one.

Support Services

We can provide a range of support services from break-fix and maintenance support to a full managed network service, ensuring that the solution remains operational at all times.
