SATIPS: the Society for support and training in Prep, Primary and Senior Schools was founded over 60 years ago to provide the best possible training in Prep Schools. It is a Society run by teachers for teachers. SATIPS is a member based professional support body for teachers, schools and teaching assistants in independent schools in the UK and worldwide.
SATIPS is dedicated to providing information on best practice directly to our members, delivering the best personal development courses and commissioning research to provide detailed information on how teaching can become even better.
SATIPS is consistently looking to provide added benefits for our member schools. We know that our Training Courses are heavily subscribed and provide excellent value for all attendees. ‘Broadsheet’, produced three times every year, and sent direct to schools, continues to offer invaluable information and guidance for subject specialists.
However we are aware that many Senior Leaders in schools are so busy that they rarely have the time or opportunities to research and source the most appropriate suppliers for the many and varied services that their schools require.
Accordingly, to assist our member schools, SATIPS is establishing a group of what we are terming as ‘Preferred Suppliers’. These are companies and organisations that offer high quality services and which have pledged to offer their very best prices to member schools, more favourable that available to other schools. They have been fully reviewed by SATIPS and can be confidently recommended. In essence SATIPS has removed the need for senior members of schools to search for potential suppliers for SATIPS has fulfilled that requirement.
Discussions are continuing with a number of potential suppliers. However we are pleased to inform you of three companies that can be immediately recommended by SATIPS as ‘Preferred Suppliers’.
To benefit from being members of SATIPS, schools must provide their SATIPS membership number when making contact with any ’Preferred Supplier’.
Over the coming months we will notify you of more companies and organisations that are designated by SATIPS as being ‘Preferred Suppliers’ However we do hope that you, as our members, will take advantage of the considerable benefits that are available from the arrangements that we have made on your behalf and which are not available to non-member schools.
