Product Synopsis
This report tracks central government ICT decision maker trends. It is intended both for those currently working with public sector clients, and those considering this market for the first time.

Introduction and Landscape
Schools in the UK spent GBP1.36bn on ICT in 2012/13, and this will grow at a CAGR of just 0.4% over the next five years. For suppliers to "make the grade" in the largest market, England (GBP1.21bn in 2012/13), responding to a more complex landscape of stakeholders, with new requirements will be crucial. Key drivers in the schools market include a shake-up of capital funding, the changing role of the local authority, greater autonomy and new groupings. These are starting to impact procurement and technology trends, including schools

switching to mobility computing, moving to cloud apps, adoption of aggregated procurement and managed services, and new procurement vehicles for broadband. Despite losing control of many schools in their areas, as a result of the expanding Academies and Free Schools programmes, local authorities will continue to play an important role in education. But with significant financial pressure on these organisations, managed IT services previously funded by capital-intensive BSF, or new services, must be self-funding - paid-for from schools' own revenue budgets. Kable cites Lambeth and Lancashire, while noting Staffordshire as an example of a new service. New groups of schools, multi-academy trusts - which control increasingly larger numbers of schools - are also becoming increasingly important in the market. With an explosion in both the number and size of these larger chains, many are looking to procure managed IT services - due to the economies of scale on offer given their size.
