United Learning

Aiming for the best flexible procurement solutions and 100% renewable tariffs.

United Learning is a group of schools with sites across England. Their aim is to improve the chances of all of their students, with their ethos summarised as ‘best in everyone’.

The education group is committed to reducing their environmental impact and has implemented their own Environmental Management System (EMS) as part of this.

They understand the need for good environmental practices as part of a wider corporate strategy and asked for Inspired’s support with their utility and sustainability requirements.

We provided a personal service to each school as well as a group flexible procurement contract.

As part of their procurement strategy, we also secured a flexible contract for the group’s gas supply, again over a four-year term. In terms of trading, this new contract puts the client in an advantageous position for the duration of their contract in comparison to their 2018/19 prices.

As part of our relationship with the client, we provide a personal service to each school within the group, covering areas such as metering, billing and accruals.

Through our energy accounting services, we ensure that the group avoids overpaying for their energy, whilst also taking away some of the more arduous aspects of utility management – leaving our client with more time to focus on their wider sustainability strategy.

100% renewable energy contract

“In keeping with their environmental goals, we helped United Learning source a greener electricity supply, negotiating a new supply contract to provide 100% renewable energy. As well as supporting their sustainability agenda, this new, four-year risk-managed strategy also saved them £79,500 over the life of the contract.”
