Interested in Procurement in School? Join us for this research evidence seminar to hear more about procurement practices across the independent sector, alongside the annual review of maintained schools.

 

We will initially present our latest budget update with an assessment on recent structural changes that impact procurement. Following this will be the launch of the latest market research and an audience discussion of the impact on suppliers.

 

The seminar is presented by Richard Connor;

Richard has been conducting market research exclusively in the schools’ sector for over 25 years, beginning at BESA then founding C3 Education in 1996.

The National Education Research Panel (NERP) was subsequently founded with the support of key education suppliers in 2005 to be able to provide more robust and representative data on the marketplace.

Building on his experience of running several educational software companies, Richard has developed a wide range of research projects using innovative methodologies and insight to support suppliers in this sector. His latest initiative is launching the International Education Research Panel (IERP) in 2016, which aims to mirror NERP and provide a platform for researching English-medium international schools.
