The Department for Education (DfE) and the Crown Commercial Service have developed free e-learning procurement training modules for school staff who are responsible for budgets and buying.

These modules are aimed at:

  • senior leadership teams
  • school business managers
  • governors or trustees.

These modules will help school staff understand public procurement legislation, share effective practice and improve their procurement skills.

Each module contains slides, trainer notes and exercises that you can use to run your own sessions. They follow a simple procurement cycle and are designed to last from 15 to 50 minutes.

You can access the e-learning procurement training modules on the GOV.UK website

Why not take a look at the Crown Commercial Service newsletter which is all about buying goods and services in education? It's a quarterly newsletter providing updates to help schools and academies buy common goods and services.
