Equipped for Learning

Midlothian Council aim to provide every school-age pupil living in Midlothian with a learning device such as an iPad or Google Chromebook as part of the Council’s £10.5 million investment in digital learning. This programme is called ‘Equipped for Learning’.

We are proud to say Midlothian is the first local authority in Scotland to launch a world-class digital learning project for all Primary 1 to Secondary 6 pupils. This programme will benefit young people and our staff by:

  • Providing a safe, secure and inclusive learning environment that all school age pupils can access equally.

  • Giving pupils the tools to take greater control of their learning with the ability to access materials on their device at anytime from anywhere.

  • Technically supporting the opportunities and demands of remote learning.

  • Using the platform Google Workspace – popular across many industries – to help pupils and staff develop digital skills for life and work.
