National Education Group acquires
The School Bus 

National Education Group (NEG), a market-leading provider of digital solutions that empower education workforces worldwide, has further enhanced its portfolio by acquiring the highly respected online information service, The School Bus, also known as Hub4Leaders. 

The School Bus and The National College, NEG’s award-winning professional development platform, will join forces to help schools and education settings achieve whole-school compliance via one integrated software platform; providing schools with a multitude of benefits, including a shared network of trusted experts and world-renowned institutions, and seamless integration of compliance reporting ready for inspection. 

Ensuring compliance has traditionally been a complex and time-consuming process for the education sector. Keeping up to date with an ever-changing legal landscape may put significant pressure on schools’ already limited resources, and distract focus from their primary role as educators. With the addition of The School Bus NEG will now offer schools access to the most comprehensive library of professional development, model policies and time-saving templates on the market, alongside advanced management tools, all in one place. School leaders will now be able to deliver whole-school online CPD and information management in one integrated software platform. 

The School Bus will further strengthen NEG’s already impressive portfolio of digital content and software solutions, which have been transforming the way educators share important information and deliver workforce training. Together, they’ve made high-quality resources instantly available which can be tailored to collective or individual needs, empowering education leaders to achieve compliance, raise standards, and generate efficiency throughout their teams. 

Neil Gamewell, CEO, National Education Group, said: We’re delighted to welcome The School Bus into the NEG family. Their addition will provide a new dimension to the NEG portfolio, helping busy school leaders stay ahead of the curve and keep up to date with the latest compliance requirements, policy changes and education news. 

“Following NEG’s investment from Synova in October 2021, this marks an exciting step in the next phase of our journey, and we are proud to help transform the way educators worldwide complete professional development, stay informed, ensure compliance and drive up standards.”
