Become a Commercial Supporter...

The Commercial Supporter Scheme has been designed for organisations who want to provide advice, goods, or services to our schools. Due to the many and diverse pressures on our school leaders’ time, they are a notoriously difficult clientele to reach through conventional channels.

Becoming a Commercial Supporter offers a unique opportunity for you to connect with large numbers of educational decision makers in the North East. It provides you with a great opportunity to build your profile, gain invaluable market intelligence, showcase your successes, and most importantly, support the North East’s schools and young people.
