How it works…

There are three simple steps to engaging our services:

Step One: Contact us to arrange an initial discussion, using the online form. (*There is no charge for this. It is an important basis of our work that schools are able to contact us with no obligation or commitment at all, so that they are then free to explore options and ideas before making any financial commitment.)

Having had the initial discussion, if you would then like to progress:

Step Two: Arrange a consultation, either at your school, the Coffee Bean Education Office in Taunton, or another convenient location, at which you can discuss your needs in greater depth and the scope of our input. Following this, you will receive a detailed and costed proposal for your approval.

Step Three: On receipt of your instruction, we will contact the school directly to arrange the schedule of work to be done.
