All your educational supplies under one banner!

This is a one-stop-shop for all of your stationery, education and office supplies. Whether you need cleaning and janitorial supplies, stationery, ink and toner, arts and crafts or paper – Banner has the answer!

Using this framework you can buy directly through Banner at the most competitive prices allowing your budget to stretch further, this is due to a comprehensive and stringent tendering process that has been completed by CPC.

"We started using Banner in May 2019 and regularly compare prices to our old supplier. During our last review we looked at a random selection of 65 products taken off orders we had made. Of these items, 50 were cheaper with Banner, giving us a total saving of 25%. Overall we are happy with the pricing and service that Banner supply, having an assigned account manager works very well for our Trust.”

Caroline Jowett, Trust Finance Officer, Beckfoot Trust

"The College had been using our previous supplier for several years and I was reluctant to change. However, when I realised that I could make a 35% saving on a like for like basket of stationery and a £1.2k saving on an £8k quote for exam sets and scientific calculators, it made sense to change to Banner. Not only am I making savings, but importantly the online ordering process is easy, I receive next day delivery on orders placed before 4pm and I have a dedicated account manager if I need any help to place an order. I would highly recommend Banner and would be more than happy for any CPC member to get in touch with me if they’re considering switching to Banner."

Mel Erangey, Physical Resources Manager, Shipley College
