16,000 for Government's subsidised computers for teachers scheme

The organisers of the Government's scheme to subsidise computers for teachers say demand is buoyant, with 16,000 application packs sent out in the month since the scheme was launched.

If all the applications are returned and approved, up to pound;8 million of the pound;20m subsidy fund will be committed, according to the Briish Educational Communications and Technology Agency, the Government agency running the scheme.
