Our expert consultants will be able to support you through any change process. With many institutions entering unknown territory or being unsure of whether a merger, or another form of collaboration will be able to benefit them, we can offer you the right guidance

Pre-merger support

For some colleges, understanding the impact a merger and receiving guidance and mapping of what a potential merger process could entail will be essential. Working with you, we will take a sensitive approach to give a clear understanding from which a confident decision-making process can be made. Our support includes:

  • Due diligence – Liaise on your behalf with banks and professional/legal organisations
  • Profiling
  • Stakeholder engagement and working with neighbouring colleges
  • Consultation on forms of collaboration
  • Mediation and legal advice

Post-merger support

Once a college has been through a merger, it is important that they are integrated quickly and effectively. Our consultants are able to support college restructures, plan and integrate their services across a wide range of business critical areas. We are also able to support on wider cultural changes and help communicate mergers to staff members, learners and the wider public.

  • MIS & HR integration
  • Curriculum planning
  • Financial planning
  • Branding, cultural change and PR
  • Out placement, redundancy consultation and reskilling
  • Governance restructuring
