Our Education Programme

We offer a highly innovative and unique programme for schools and local authorities that allows for both the acquisition and maintenance of instruments for a specified term. This aims to remove the administrative burden of managing and maintaining a pool of instruments, as well as transfering costs from capital to operational budgets. The scheme caters for all levels of student and has proved a very popular 'pain free' alternative to traditional models. Full details are available on request. Please note that at present this scheme is currently only available to qualifying educational establishments.
