About the Event

Now APSE, the foremost public service networking organisation in the UK, has organised a unique event for academies and academy chains to meet council providers of services to schools.

This market engagement event is not open to private sector suppliers and will concentrate on helping the academy sector re-engage with their public sector cousins: council caterers, cleaners, property and grounds maintenance departments and a range of other publically delivered services.

The day will include:

  • Case study presentations
  • Presentations on legal and commercial considerations
  • Discussion about the obstacles and benefits of the academy sector working in partnership with council providers

There will be ample time for informal networking and a market place wall for attendees to post information about their needs and their offers.
