Indigo Swan have a passion for education

 

As many of you will already be aware, we have a passion for learning at Indigo Swan. We are lucky enough to work with lots of different clients from the education sector from all over the UK. That’s one of the reasons why we are excited to share with you our recent partnership with Schools Plus.

Tony Lock, Managing Director said: “I am delighted that Schools Plus are partnering with Indigo Swan; with both companies being passionate about what we do and having the most professional offerings in our prospective sectors it was a natural decision for us. The core of the Schools Plus business is being a letting solution to providing a source of flexible, additional income for schools and working alongside Indigo Swan means we can provide even greater benefits and further financial support. I am very excited to be evolving the Schools Plus business in a direction that will continue to help more schools, not only with expertly managed community lettings but with our developing portfolio of Schools Plus approved partners.”

Schools Plus are a visionary school letting facilities management organisation turning disused school facilities into thriving community hubs and providing a flexible income solution for schools. They now have over 15 years of experience and are industry experts with a comprehensive business model that ensures safe and professional lettings every single day and every single one of their schools.

We realised very early on that as two very different businesses we had a lot in common. Firstly, our desire to give back to the education system and how people and values were central points to our companies.

Going forward we will be working closely with the team at Schools Plus to find ways to make schools more energy efficient and help them negotiate the best contracts to suit their needs. Any savings the schools make through the Indigo Swan and Schools Plus scheme will be reinvested back into the schools.

Aimee Konieczny, Energy Contract Enthusiast Coach at Indigo Swan said: “Each school will benefit from our tailored and individual support and advice. There isn’t a generic “one size fits all” approach to electricity and gas procurement, and we recognise that each school will have different needs and demands. I’m really looking forward to working with Schools Plus and the individual schools in order to help navigate the complex and often confusing energy market.”

One aim is to offer academic institutions lots of tools and knowhow to help them make better decisions about their energy. We understand how energy efficiency can be a concern for schools and many overspend on their energy bills simply because they don’t understand the market or the contracts they are in. By gaining an understanding of what they are currently using and what they use it on, could result in a saving being made. Our trusted partnership means together we can give back to the education sector.

“When the opportunity came along to form a partnership with Schools Plus, we jumped at the chance. The shared values, the same vision and the want to help and engage with the education sector was clear to see for both companies. By offering the schools and colleges that Schools Plus work with the opportunity to negotiate better energy contracts and to work with Schools Plus and the Schools on how the savings can be spent is an extremely rewarding initiative and one that I hope grows year on year. We want to find a better way for schools to purchase and manage their energy and give something back at the same time.” James added.
