How we can support you

We have a successful track-record of supporting public sector organisations – there are four main ways in which we do this.

strategic planning

We support organisations to develop important strategic plans, bringing them and key stakeholders together by facilitating high-profile consultation events or through fast-paced priority reviews. We have worked with national and local government to develop strategies for supporting school improvement, special educational needs, and planning children’s services.

delivery efficiency and innovation

We work with organisations to plan and deliver their strategies, programmes and services effectively. We have set up delivery units in national and local governments, and are supporting the winners of Bloomberg Philanthropies' European Mayors Challenge to deliver their initiatives.

organisational capacity

We work with organisations to build their capacity to implement change, deliver effectively and achieve better outcomes through fast-paced reviews (for example of how local authorities and multi-academy trusts support school improvement) and through intensive capacity-building, training and coaching.

research and evaluation

We carry out high-profile national research and evaluation projects including in the areas of schools-led education systems, school-to-school partnerships, support for school improvement, closing achievement gaps for vulnerable pupils, post-16 education, special educational needs, and teacher training and professional development.
