Studywiz approved supplier on UK Information Management and Learning Services Framework

Studywiz approved supplier on UK Information Management and Learning Services Framework

I am very pleased to announce that Studywiz has been awarded a place on the Information Management and Learning Services Framework (Lot 2 – Learning Services) by the UK Government Procurement Service.

The framework was developed to meet educational needs and to offer schools, academies, consortia and local authorities a number of benefits including better value for money through competition, easier benchmarking and budgeting, improved opportunities for interoperability, and a pre-approved list of suppliers. It will make it easier, quicker and cheaper for UK education establishments to procure a new learning platform.

Studywiz fully supports the aims of the framework and we are looking forward to working with the Government Procurement Service and the Department for Education to offer UK schools the best possible service.

You can read more about the framework on the DfE IMLS website.
