We provide specialist advice to the Education sector, working with School Business Managers and Head Teachers throughout the UK. We are Approved Partners and Supporters of The Lancashire Association of School Business Managers (LASBM), Cumbria Association of School Business Administration and Management (CASBAM), Association of Business Leaders in Education (ABLE), Nottingham City Council, Leicestershire Academies Group (LAG), Bradford SBM Forum and South Yorkshire School Business Leaders Group (SYSBL).
Our mission is to put money back into Education by identifying areas where savings can be achieved. Having worked with hundreds of schools we have found that 29 out of 30 schools are being overcharged for their telecoms products and services without them being aware. As a result, telecoms is a key area for savings to be made quickly and therefore one we focus on first.
By the end of 2017, our 402 School customers benefitted from annual savings of £450,000. In 2018, our target is to increase this annual saving to £750,000. These savings go directly back into Schools every year to benefit children and their education.
We provide the following two key services that will benefit your School:
Our telecoms audits are guaranteed to save you time and your school money. Our experts will analyse all elements of your telecoms expenditure and highlight areas where savings can be made and how much. To learn more about our Telecoms Audits Click Here

Ripley St Thomas CE Academy
TGE Solutions carried out a Telecoms Audit for us and confirmed that I already had good rates. They did however find some hidden charges that I wasn’t aware of that amounted to over £700 a year. One quick call to my existing provider and these charges were removed. If you haven't already contacted TGE Solutions to arrange an audit, I can definitely recommend it.” Sue Edwards Director of Business & Finance.

“As our Telephone System had reached end of life, we employed the services of TGE Solutions to help us purchase a new one. They gave jargon free advice on different technologies, recommended companies to invite to quote and they even wrote the tender. A valuable service from start to finish.” Nigel Foster Vice Principal Business & Finance

“As the Finance Director, I have to manage tight budgets. Phillip was able to tell us very quickly where we could cut costs and found us savings in excess of £2,100 a year. He clearly had great knowledge and gave us straightforward advice. He has saved us a considerable amount of time and money and I have already recommended him to other schools in York.” Jonathan Meehan Finance Director.
