Our goal is to help further education (FE) learning providers in England evaluate and take advantage of the many benefits that technology can offer, particularly during area review implementation.
Personalised support, as and when you need it
Due to each college inherently having different characteristics as well as different objectives and requirements, we appreciate that the nature and level of support we can offer will vary from college to college.
We’re here to help, here are some examples of the support we can offer:
Merger support (part of our consultancy service)
As part of our consultancy service, we can provide practical support, expert assistance and specialist consultancy through a package tailored to your needs.
Our ongoing, impartial advice and extensive hands-on support can enable you to identify the issues, select solutions and work through the process to an optimal outcome.
We have experience of supporting merging colleges, enabling them to successfully address associated IT issues, as well as other opportunities and challenges that merging raises.
This free tool provides not only detailed analysis of the full cost to deliver all IT services by service, but also benchmarking against peer institutions. This provides a way to identify areas of relatively high and low IT spend.
Transparency and benchmarking provided by this tool delivers robust decision support for future IT cost management.
We offer specialist advice from our team of experts in curriculum design, business process, IT and enterprise systems, and workforce development.
We can provide advice and assistance to participating colleges throughout the process both for data submission and governor decision making. We can also offer ongoing support with agreed implementation plans arising from the area review processes.
We also offer support and advice regarding how technology can support colleges who wish to merger and/or rationalise.
