The Welsh Government, local authorities and Regional Education Consortia are committed to working together on a national approach to digital education technology and services for schools, aligning with the structure of the Digital Professional Learning Journey. This approach will enable maintained schools in Wales to consistently exploit the transformational benefits which digital and technology can have on education.

There are two main groups that help oversee and support the Hwb programme achieve its aims.

EdTech Delivery Authority (ETDA)

The group is made up of strategic representatives from the Welsh Government, all local authorities, and Regional Education Consortia. The group meets quarterly and is responsible for:

  • ensuring that the Hwb programme is delivering a digital infrastructure to support the Curriculum for Wales
  • ensuring that the views of all local authorities are considered when it comes to digital services available through Hwb
  • approving the strategic recommendations of the Technology Standardisation Group

Technology Standardisation Group (TSG)

The group is made up of representatives from the Welsh Government and all local authorities. The group meets quarterly and is responsible for:

  • providing expert advice and guidance on the Education Digital Standards to ensure they remain accurate, fit for purpose and appropriate for schools use
  • providing insight to shape current and future Hwb products and services
  • working together to decide what schools’ digital infrastructure needs are, so that we can buy digital equipment and services “Once for Wales” and get good value for money that could not be achieved otherwise
  • ensuring that the national ICT catalogue for schools contains the infrastructure, devices and classroom equipment that schools need to deliver excellent teaching and learning and the Curriculum for Wales
