The Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA)  has reached an agreement with the UK Department for Education to provide a collective copyright licence that could save schools and councils up to £16.5 million per year1 when calculated across all the licences in the package. By centralising in this way each school’s administrative staff will no longer need to spend significant time and resources applying for and managing licences.

The bottom line is that by simplifying copyright licensing in schools, the substantial administrative savings will directly benefit schools whilst recognising the value of quality creative content in school life.
