Selling to Academy Schools
Back in 2000, the then Labour Government announced that they were creating the Learning and Skills Act 2000, paving the way for the introduction of Academy Schools. Since that time, the number of Academy Schools has increased at a prolific rate. This in turn has created huge opportunities for education suppliers and other businesses that are looking to sell to Academy Schools.
Growth of Academy Schools
Academy Schools present opportunities for education suppliers since they are totally free of Local Authority control and able to make procurement decisions based on what they feel will provide best value. What’s more, as many Academy Schools are opening as new establishments, they often have huge requirements in the early days to get their school ready for learning.
