Organisations and public bodies that are looking to tackle the unprecedented economic climate are making massive organisational and technological changes.
At the same time, lack of business confidence is delaying investment in new projects and intensifying scrutiny on the delivery of value and cost effective spending.
We are able to provide a range of solutions to augment your strategy, from strategic partnerships where we share your risk, to managed services and full outsourcing solutions.
Our expert teams include project managers, behavioural change consultants, finance professionals, research analysts, ICT specialists and HR advisors, all ready to support your needs whether that be for statutory, targeted or specialist services.
Funding, investment and value for money
Our specialist education finance consultants and accountants can help your own staff fulfil their roles as effectively as possible.
We can call on administrators and qualified accountants who are experts in the complex operation of operational improvement and finances. They understand how multiple funding streams work, so we can support your own staff in this challenging environment.
The whole issue of getting value for money from your funding sources has never been more important. We’ll ensure that the budget allocated to your varied operations is generating the returns you want to see and work closely with your teams to transfer the necessary knowledge that will develop your operations in the long term.
The crucial asset - people
We’ll help you deal with staffing challenges, re-organisation and change, and establishing new terms of employment.
Our extensive workplace experience covers everything you need to establish new educational facilities or make wholesale alterations to existing ones. With a thorough understanding of labour law and current regulations, we can draft the job descriptions, pay structures and conditions of employment to enable a new human resources department to begin operations.
We're also trusted hands in increasingly common situations that involve transferring staff in a properly protected manner from their current public sector employers into a new environment. We have experience of doing this within a school or group of schools or across a whole area.
At the forefront of technological innovation
We know you use information technology to collate, store and communicate data, everything from basic contact information to education, health and care plans.
Collaborating with you to get the best out of your investment, we can run the entire procurement process in environments ranging through small and large schools, to multi-site regional hubs and global networks. We factor in your educational vision, the functionality and the technical design, and put together the documentation to acquire exactly what you need.
We make sure you end up with what you intended, because installation and configuration present their own challenges. Installers might provide what they think you need not
A* performance improvement in schools
From 2002-2013, we were responsible for education delivery and improvement of more than 150 facilities in Islington; from nurseries to colleges.
Our approach transformed educational attainment in the borough, which was trailing 22% behind the UK average in 2000. Through our intervention, the proportion of pupils achieving GCSE grades A* to C jumped from 26.5% to 74% in 2011.
