Technology Leasing

Leasing your technology through a public-sector compliant operating lease is a simple and cost-effective way of keeping control of your technology requirements in your school.

Let’s Start With Why…

  • A single, manageable, operating cost

    Simple accounting with an efficient process, supported by a DfE-approved provider

  • More technology, more quickly

    Benefit from a higher value of technology from the first year, usually at a lower spend

  • Avoid large capital spend

    Retain scarce capital funds for other areas and any unexpected (unwelcome) surprises

  • Increase and improve standardisation

    Teachers and learners receive equal access, specification, training and opportunity

  • Approved by Department for Education

    Public-sector compliance, endorsed by three government frameworks

Upgrading your interactive whiteboards in your classrooms – an example:

Unless you’ve recently undertaken a whole school upgrade, whether due to age, specification or type of technology, it’s unlikely that any two classes in your school have the same equipment.  This means your school is providing different standards of teaching in different classrooms.

That’s not fair on the teachers or the learners.

Leasing your technology using a public-sector approved operating lease offers a fairer, more efficient alternative… it basically means for a similar annual cost you can equip more classrooms with the latest technology, compared with a staged upgrade. Your budget goes further.

How does it work?

Technology Lease

A school with nine classrooms may purchase three new interactive displays per year, for three years. This will usually fit with budgets allocated in an ICT Development Plan.

However – the cost to purchase one screen can be similar to funding three screens. This means for a similar annual cost to purchasing three touchscreens, you could equip nine classrooms with screens on a flexible funding programme. Fairer, and in many ways, more efficient.

You then have a range of options at the end of your initial term, giving you maximum flexibility depending on your circumstances at the time

Also, this funding programme can be used with any high-value equipment; from IT and AV, sign-in systems, school hall technology through to playground equipment, sports surfaces, LED lighting and security systems.
