Welcome to WMnet!
WMnet came into existence as one of Englands original Regional Broadband Consortia (RBC). It was established under the National Grid for Learning programme to enhance the quality of learning through the development of a distributed, regional learning network built on a broadband backbone giving all 2,500 schools in the region affordable and reliable broadband connectivity. It further developed to concentrate on producing and highlighting content specifically relevant to schools in the region, undertaking in many collaborative and ground breaking projects. Current priorities for WMnet include supporting the safeguarding agenda for schools in the region, as well as developing new approaches to ICT, the new Computing and wider curriculum.
WMnet is delighted to be working closely with another RBC, E2BN
. Together, we provide a wide range of services with our membership partners to some 5000 schools in England. As part of the National Education Network (NEN), we provide support and services across more than 16000 schools in the UK.
