Get the support you need

During this period of significant change in further education, the demands being placed on colleges are bigger than ever before with colleges having to achieve more with less resources. We can help you identify areas where your college can improve performance,  generate more funds and meet the high targets that have been set across all areas of college functions.

Strategic reviews

Colleges need to know how changes will affect learners, employees, stakeholders and the broader community. Sitting in the heart of the sector, we understand the huge impact a change programme can have on a college. We take that burden from you with our reviews, ensuring you’re making the right changes for the right reasons and will get the outcomes that you want. We will work with you to create a project team with the relevant skills and experience needed to help guide your organisation through any rigorous process, allowing you and your staff to move forward confidently.

Finance and funding

Colleges obtain an average of 80% of their income from Government departments and agencies so they can offer provision to young people or adults with lower skills or on a subsidised basis, such as Apprenticeships. With pressure growing on funded provision and colleges facing a challenging future in terms of quality and a diversity of income our team can help. By providing staff with training on efficiency, including Lean and Six Sigma practices, our experts can deliver an overall health check and funding review that will enable longer term strategic planning and viability.

Marketing, PR, communications & social media

We can support you across all communications to ensure you’re making the most of the fantastic opportunities to market yourself to a wide audience of potential students, partners and stakeholders, as well as not losing sight of the importance of ensuring solid and consistent internal communications to your staff and learners. Our consultants will be able to help your college in the areas of improving and managing internal and external communications, media training, crisis management, PR and public perception survey, data analysis to improve collaboration and recruitment marketing to boost the quality and success of applications
