A leading Debt Collection Agency has recently been awarded ‘Gold Supplier Status’ by the Independent Schools Association (ISA) . Frontline Collections became the first ever Debt Collection firm to be affiliated with a leading Private Schools association.
The Independent Schools Association is the oldest and most exclusive Private Schools association, whose origins date back to 1847. The ISA boasts over 535 members which include some of the UK’s most exclusive private education establishments.
The future of some Private Schools is something that has been under threat over recent years with unpaid fees being cited a major factor. In addition, It is thought that the pandemic will only have exacerbated the problem.
The ISA said the sustainability of private schools was a ‘major challenge many are currently facing’.
It is understood that the basis for the new partnership was that Frontline Collections were already successfully assisting a significant number of ISA members with the recovery of unpaid school fees.
Frontline Collections are a famous name in the Professional Debt Collection industry. As well as being specialists for Private Schools Debt Collection, other sectors they champion include collection of unpaid veterinary fees, recovery of dental fees and assisting private childcare facilities.
The Manchester headquartered Debt Collection Agency operates a Nationwide service and has operational regional offices. Since their launch in 2005, they have collected millions of pounds on behalf of businesses and private individuals.
Frontline’s notable sister company is the highly accredited B2B Debt Recovery experts, Federal Management.
Alec Warburton, Frontline Collection’s New Business Manager is quoted on the ISA’s own website as saying “The ISA plays a pivotal role within the Private Education sector and we are proud to work with them in supporting Independent Schools across the UK. We know that some schools are facing major challenges in relation to the Non-Payment of School fees at the moment, and we relish the opportunity to work with them in tackling the problem”
“We are looking forward to working with the ISA and its members, whilst making a positive contribution for the sustainability of the ISA Community”
With the UK set to enter another lockdown, the Debt Collection industry looks set to play a major role in helping the Country’s economy recover, post coronavirus.
