The Learners Trust x Oaks

Since its inception in June 2016, Learners’ Trust, has grown to 18 schools across the regions of Sheffield, Chesterfield, Rotherham and Derbyshire. The Trust has experienced rapid growth which has put their central services under pressure and has seen them inherit a wide range of supplier contracts that serve a similar purpose across their schools.

Oaks were initially commissioned to develop an income generation plan to help the Trust deliver additional value to invest back into the pupils and communities it served. Following this planning process, Oaks were retained to deliver on these recommendations and generated around 350,000 over two years, primarily through Trust and Foundation grant funding and procurement savings.
