DfE - Get Help Buying for Schools

Get Help Buying for Schools is a free and impartial service, delivered directly by the Department for Education (DfE) to help you with buying goods and services for your school. ​

From 1 February, all state funded schools and trusts can access advice and guidance on buying goods and services through a DfE approved framework. This has replaced the two pilot school buying hubs  one which was in the north west and one which was in the south west.

From summer 2022, through the Get Help Buying Service, schools will also be able to get advice for any route to market and ongoing support to help run a procurement process themselves. Or, if a school or trust needs extra support, the service can undertake the buying process on their behalf  through a framework, or by getting quotes or bids through an appropriate buying process.

For regular updates on the hub, follow the Buying for Schools blog.
