A place to share knowledge, drive efficiencies and save time sourcing suppliers, the NEC event has become a fixture of the education calendar over the last 12 years and will again host a number of noteworthy speakers from across the sector, aiming to pass on ideas, expertise, and best practice.  

From inspiring leaders to innovative suppliers, everything is under one roof and attendees can register their place today, free of charge, with free parking available at the NEC site on the day. 

 Representatives of CPC and Tenet will be on hand at the CPL Village to advise members on accessing our diverse portfolio of over 90 bespoke compliant purchasing frameworks, including those approved by the Department for Education and our Tenet On-Demand procurement consultancy service. 

 Members of the CPL Group team will also be in attendance to share information on grant funding opportunities via our charitable work, which to date has donated nearly £1 million to schools and academies across the UK. 

 Delegates can meanwhile gain access to more than 30 hours of CPD certified content, helping them take even more free and practical advice back to their institutions.  

We encourage you to register your free place here, come and visit us at the heart of the show for a free coffee and cake and have a chat on how we can support you with all your procurement needs.
