Similar to how the LGfL is formed, NEN - The Education Network is formed by Regional Broadband Consortia (RBCs such as the LGfL), the univerisities networks (e.g. JANET) and the National Learning Network for Further Education all working together.
NEN is at the heart of the government’s ambitions to transform education. It promises to spread best practice, to help schools share limited resources and to promote the development of online teaching materials crafted explicitly to support all aspects of the national curriculum.
NEN ensures that all schools, colleges and universities are connected through a single backbone enabling a high quality e-learning experience in a safe and secure networked environment.
