Support Services for Education
Working Together - Providing Opportunities
Welcome to the new Support Services for Education (SSE) website.

Support Services for Education is a traded unit within Somerset County Council that offers a wide variety of support services to all education providers, including Schools, Academies, Further Education Colleges, Early Years Providers, Childcare Settings, Local Authorities and other establishments. As a public sector trading unit we provide the right balance between public sector ethos and commercial practice.

Here at SSE we have no financial shareholders and operate a not for profit business model, any surplus that we generate is reinvested to improve outcomes for children and young people. This ensures that we deliver great value services that are continually improving.

We are committed to making a difference to children and young people and were shortlisted for the Local Government Chronicle's Team of the Year Award 2016.
