What discounts can teachers get?
Have a quick search online and you’ll see that there are lots of discounts and deals available to teachers. These might be available directly from a retailer, through your local education authority, from your school, or through specialist discount companies.
You’ll be able to find a long list of retailers and brands offering discounts through specialist discount companies or by searching for specific companies online.
