Education & Skills
The scale and pace of change across the entire education and skills sector is daunting in its complexity and for its wider economic impact on the UK’s productivity and competitiveness. As a result the relationship between government, business and education providers has never been more interlinked.
From the acceleration of Academies and Free Schools, to the devolution of FE and skills budgets and decision making. From employer ownership of apprenticeships, to the large scale market reform that can be seen throughout the entire Higher Education sector.
Developing an effective communications programme is essential for every organisation looking to navigate the education and skills sector, whether you are an education provider or a business looking to operate in the sector for the first time.
