Digital Education Policy and Implementation in the UK and Ireland

In 2018, Northern Ireland Screen also commissioned RSMNI to complete a review of existing education policy in Northern Ireland in comparison to other parts of the UK and Republic of Ireland. This report is a vital first step in comparing Northern Ireland education policy and implementation in this regard with our local counterparts, and provides valuable evidence for those working in education policy.
