Cambridge Education is the education arm of Mott MacDonald’s education, public health and social care business in the UK. We provide technical support and project management to implement and improve education at school, regional and national level. Our work ranges from education evaluation to school, local authority, and central government transformation.
Sharing your ambitions
The needs of the UK public sector are rapidly changing. Our national network of experts find opportunities in complexity, turning obstacles into elegant, sustainable solutions. By providing advice, solutions, and support, we add value to our clients – you – and the lives you touch every day.
In many instances we provide solutions across both the Cambridge Education and Mott MacDonald brands, linking our education experts with the breadth of consultancy and project management in Mott MacDonald.
Outstanding teams creating outstanding results
Our advisers, consultants, project and programme managers take lead roles in the UK’s highest profile education, health and social care projects. By collaborating with us, you will have access to the vast knowledge of recognised educationalists, programme managers, economists, project advisors, cost consultants, business strategists and more.
From running training courses for teaching school alliances and trusts through to managing the entire education service in the London Borough of Barnet, our teams work with you to save money and time, reduce risks, increase efficiency and advance best practice.
We are recognised for providing added value across three distinct areas of focus:
Central government and national bodies
Using the latest knowledge from our front line delivery, we assist national bodies to implement crucial social policies including the 30 hours’ free early education for two, three and four-year-olds.
We have a strong record of complex project and programme management, delivering programmes on behalf of the Department for Education in SEND, Early Years and Adoption Support.
Local authorities and regional bodies
By working in genuine partnership, we manage and deliver services that surpass the outcomes demanded by our stakeholders.
Whether your needs be statutory, targeted or specialist services we are able to draw on the diverse skills of our teams to embed the organisational changes and ultimately increase educational attainment. Our core staff are permanent employees supported by a cohort of well trusted and experienced associates.
Since the year 2000, we have provided education services at various times on behalf of Islington, Slough and Barnet. In all cases local authority performance increased, supporting better outcomes for local children.
Schools, academies and colleges
Schools are at the heart of our mission to improve children's learning. We analyse what is needed and help to deliver all the key elements – from curriculum development and the training of teachers and school managers to literacy and numeracy schemes and student assessment.
We have been involved in the academy programme since 2002 and have worked on the conversion of well over 100 schools to academies and free schools, working with a diverse range of proposers/sponsors and multi-academy trusts (MATs).
The vast experience we bring to bear contributes greatly to our reputation for attaining excellence. Our support can range from single-day curriculum reviews in school, through to a full-service best value and governance review in a MAT.
