Schools are being encouraged to register their interest to join the Schools’ Buying Hub, a new scheme funded by the Department for Education (DfE).
The free service is a key element of the DfE’s Schools’ Buying Strategy designed to help schools save £1 billion nationally by 2020. It is currently being piloted in the South West and North West of England only.
The Hub will provide your school, school cluster or trust with procurement advice and guidance, support with complex procurements. It will also help in aggregating spending with other schools or academies within your MAT.
Register your interest for the South West pilot or North West pilot.
