Resources & Case Studies

Keep yourself up to date

From our own experience, we know that because schools and academies simply don’t have the time, resources or skillsets to procure services efficiently and cost-effectively, they’re underestimating their buying potential.

Not only will ECS help you unlock this potential and increase efficiencies for your school, we’ll simultaneously mentor and upskill your team by giving them access to our own experience and understanding.

Our Case Studies reflect the insights and impacts a proactive approach to purchasing has had on schools within our own Multi-Academy Trust. We’ve also included a guide to purchasing best practice, which focuses on our top tips for success.
