Education Trade-in Programme

Trading in, could bring down the cost of a new class set of iPad or a suite of Mac models for your school or institution. Apple devices are durable so they have a high residual value. Unlike other devices that are given away or discarded at the end of their life cycle, Apple devices retain significant value over time and can be traded in when it's time to upgrade. iPad can retain around 20% of it’s original value after four years and that could be as high as 25% for MacBook Air.

Environmental Sustainability

Schools will find it hard to continue to innovate if the technology they use is out of date. Our Refresh and Recycle Programme allows institutions to trade-in pre-loved devices (any Apple hardware) and use the residual value towards new devices, offering a continual sustainable cycle of longevity and value.

Apple devices will run more securely and efficiently on the latest macOS and iPadOS. Without an up-to-date suite of Apple education apps, teachers will struggle to guide learning and share work. But, Apple technology doesn't need to be expensive, in fact it should cut costs and provide amazing value by reducing teacher workload and improve marking, assessment, staff retention, recruitment and lower copying and printing costs.
