At McGraw Hill, our vision is to unlock the full potential of each learner and our mission is to accelerate learning.  We achieve this by partnering with institutions to create and deliver intuitive, engaging, efficient, and effective learning experiences.

Our Learning Matters program has been created to widen the availability and accessibility for all students and educators that want to partner with us to fulfil this mission.

Through our Learning Matters program, institutions have an opportunity to apply for funding to support their transition to using technology in their teaching.

Announcing our £100,000 grant fund

Over the last 12 months the landscape of Higher Education has fundamentally changed. Your faculty have made significant changes to ensure the continuity of their courses to keep students engaged and their learning continuous - often with little experience in creating and delivering online courses. We know that this wasn’t easy and that this created additional challenges to ensure that courses have remained accessible and deliverable in a virtual world.

To do our part to help out, we are launching the Learning Matters grant programme.

This programme offers access to a grant fund of £100,000 worth of McGraw Hill content, education technologies and services to help you make the changes you need to ensure success in the coming academic year.
