How school book suppliers can add value to your school

School book suppliers can be one of two things. They can be order takers… or they can offer a service that adds real value to your school. At Endeavour Education, we choose to be the latter.

When you find a school book supplier that brings more than just books to the table, the difference is immeasurable. And it doesn’t take rocket science to make it happen. The things that really add value are the services that make it easier for you to get on with your job.

Booklist services

Booklist services

Booklists on their own are a simple and efficient way for schools to streamline the delivery of learning resources to every student.

It’s one thing to send a booklist to parents… it’s something else altogether to have a booklist partner who will consult with you to customise booklists for your requirements and to then handle the entire ordering process from end to end. Parent questions handled… order fulfilment handled. Delivery handled.

With the diversity of booklist resources from print texts and digital resources to stationery items and art materials, being able to call on your school book suppliers for expert guidance is invaluable.

Checklists

Checklists

Whether you are purchasing books for primary students, secondary students or your school library, checklists are a convenient way to help you match your needs with available resources.

Choosing the right books can not only save you time and money for your school, but also ensure you are providing the best possible educational experience for your students.

The checklists your school book suppliers provide should be dynamic. They should be aligned to your current curriculum and updated as the curriculum changes. They should give you all the information you need for your planning – including title information, release date and price – so you can make the right decisions.

Checklists are more than an exercise in ticking boxes… they are a powerful tool that will add value to your school.

Book covering

Book covering

Let’s face it, school books can cop a battering. The best way to extend the life of your textbooks – to save your school money in the long term – is to cover them.

A good school supplier will offer book-covering and book-binding services. They will use library-grade plastic for the best results and offer additional services such as barcoding and labelling books for library use.

These kinds of specialty services add value to your school, saving you money and time.

Library books

Library books

A good school book supplier will have checklists available for your library resources. They will recommend the newest and most popular titles. They will guide you on books from the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s recommended reading list. And they will suggest age-appropriate titles for every year level.

More than that, they will go the extra mile to source hard-to-find titles, and research subjects of interest and provide you with a comprehensive list of suitable titles.

The value add for your school is a well-stocked library, supported by a team of educational resource experts.

Digital resources

Digital resources

Whatever approach your school takes to digital resources, your school book supplier should be able to support you with a platform that is easy and convenient to use.

Digital resources can be a wonderful educational tool… but when they are difficult to access or clunky to manage, you end up wasting resources and time. A school book supplier focused on adding value will have a digital solution that takes that stress off your plate.

And to go a step further, they will manage your entire digital realm on your behalf. Login or password questions, issues with digital resources, access or usage questions, they will handle it all.
