The Schools’ Buying Hub South West team will be hosting virtual roadshows throughout the Summer term




During the Spring Term the Hub hosted Roadshows across the South West, answering procurement questions posed by school business leaders. The Hub team also got them started on running tenders from catering to cleaning and ICT and professional services. Due to the success of these events, the Hub will be hosting a number of virtual Roadshows over the coming weeks. Once again, we will be offering school business leaders one-to-one consultations with procurement experts, who will advise on how to save schools and trusts time and money.

To sign up to an event and one-to-one consultation at any of the locations listed below, simply email

During your consultation procurement experts can:

  • Assess if you are receiving the best quality and the keenest prices across all your contracted services
  • Start writing a complex specification based on requirements (supplied to us in advance)
  • Manage the wins and challenges of buying jointly with neighbouring schools and within MATs
