Trade-in your unwanted devices

The HP for Education (HPfE) trade-in programme allows schools to unlock additional funds, on average £5,000*, by trading-in old equipment after purchasing new devices. This environmentally responsible recycling of your unwanted equipment helps your budget go further by funding access to Discovery Education's digital curriculum resources. 

Purchase your new equipment 

To get started, register with Discovery Education and we'll support you through the whole trade-in process. Next, you'll need to purchase your new ICT equipment via the Probrand marketplace.  

Register with HPfE

Once you've purchased your new equipment, you'll need to register on the HPfE site within 30 days of your purchase. As part of the registration process you'll need the following information:​

  • Full registered school address

  • Authorised contact details

  • School bank account details 

  • School VAT number (if applicable)

Please note: your bank details are needed to issue your rewards. Your account can take up to 3 working days to be approved.

*£5,000 is the average trade in value expected by HP in 2019

Start your trade-in 

​Once you have registered with the HPfE programme you're ready to trade-in your old devices. ​​You'll have 30 calendar days in which to collect the trade-in items and arrange delivery to HP.
