Education Technology is now live

The new Education Technology framework, developed in collaboration with the Department for Education is now live. Schools, multi-academy trusts, universities and colleges can all use the framework to buy a broad range of technologies and services. 

Replacing ICT Services for Education, which expired earlier this year, Education Technology gives you access to 44 suppliers, 79% of which are SMEs.

What you can buy

  • ICT solutions: specialist suppliers for fully or partially managed ICT services. This option is ideal if you are looking for an ICT refresh or a complete new build solution
  • broadband fibre infrastructure: design and installation of broadband fibre infrastructure
  • broadband services: connectivity services including full fibre broadband (both new services and upgrades), support and maintenance, internet filtering, firewall, eSafety and IP connectivity
  • hardware: from laptops, desktops and tablets to servers, networking cables and routers. Plus, extras such as printers, mice and charging trolleys. You can also buy software operating systems as part of a hardware package
  • audio visual: provision and installation of sound and/or visual equipment, such as interactive whiteboards and tables, digital signage, TVs, audio visual software and auditorium solutions

Best value

Buying through this framework means you can take advantage of:

  • exceptional value for money with competitive product and service pricing 
  • easy to use templates and guidance to help you on your procurement journey
  • access to suppliers with the knowledge, skills and capability to help you ensure a modern digital learning environment

Plus, coming soon: an online catalogue for fast and efficient purchase of small volumes of hardware and audio visual equipment.
