Supporting your Connect The Classroom (CTC) implementation every step of the way

CTC is a DfE-funded initiative to provide the education environment with a cutting-edge network infrastructure. If you're in an eligible area, it provides your pupils dependable and fast access to online resources to enrich their learning.

What can the CTC grant cover?

• Fibre connection upgrade
• Network switches upgrade (core and edge)
• Cat 6 cabling upgrade
• New access points
• New cabinets if required.


Why trust Nviron?

Since introducing the CTC initiative in 2021, we have completed installations at more than 30 education establishments. With another 20 installations in progress, we know a thing or two about helping you complete the DfE documentation to help you secure the funds you require.


Our experience also helps us prepare quotes that meet the DfE specification whilst aligning with your budget and requirements.


If you would like to know if your education establishment is eligible for CTC funding, please speak to one of our team.
