BLi Education Becomes Approved Supplier for Home Access Grants

Education sector specialist, BLi Education, has been selected by Becta as one of only six companies currently approved to sell computer and internet packages to recipients of the Home Access Grant.

Home Access is a new government-backed programme targeting low income families that do not have access to a computer or the internet at home.

The owner of brands including Sherston publishing, TAG Learning and SEMERC, BLi Education will be the only company supplying equipment which will include an additional FREE pack worth over 570 of tried and tested educational software and resources, as used in schools today, enabling students to continue using familiar tools and applications as they use their computers at home and elsewhere.

BLi will be selling equipment through mail order and online, offering benefits for those families without access to transport to collect equipment from a high street store.

Following a rigorous Becta tender process, BLi Education was selected alongside Comet, Centerprise, Misco, Positive IT and XMA, and was the only supplier chosen that didn't take part in the original pilot of the scheme, in Oldham and Suffolk.
