Hub Virtual Roadshows
The Schools’ Buying Hub South West team is on a mission to help schools achieve best value for money on non-staff spend. We attend and run a number of events throughout the year so we can meet you in person and discuss how we could be helping you save your school time and money.
The Schools’ Buying Hub South West Roadshows
After the success and popularity of our Spring Term Roadshows, The Schools’ Buying Hub South West team will be hosting virtual Roadshows throughout the Summer Term! We are hosting introductory events across the South West with our procurement specialists to discuss your school’s specific needs. During the consultations we can:
- Assess if you are receiving best quality and the keenest prices across all your contracted services
- Start writing a complex specification based on requirements (we’ll gather this from you in advance)
- Manage the wins and challenges of buying jointly with neighbouring schools and within your Trust
… and much more!

A message from Norma Johnston, Head of School Engagement
Meeting face-to-face with school business leaders and managers has proven the best way to build strong working relationships.
Understanding precisely what each school, academy or Multi-Academy Trust needs ensures the Hub can move promptly to create tangible savings. It also gives SBLs the chance to meet others in the same profession to see what’s working for them and whether buying together could be an option.
The Hub team is on the road across the South West, please contact us below for a visit or to attend one of our Roadshows.Contact us
