ICT Leasing For Schools and Colleges

ICT Leasing For Schools and Colleges

ICT leasing for schools is popular in the current economic climate due to stringent government cutbacks making school equipment funding harder than ever.

Despite budget cutbacks, IT equipment will still age and will still need upgrading to satisfy the demands of advancing technology.

SchoolCare can, through our specialist funding partners, assist schools in providing tailored ICT leasing for schools, colleges or universities.

ICT Leasing solutions for education can help spread budgets over a longer period and make important investments still possible.
