Further Education Sector

The Further Education (FE) Sector continues to evolve.

The reclassification of FE colleges as public sector organisations by the Office for National Statistics in November 2022 had a significant impact on college finances. The withdrawal of commercial borrowing and the restriction on selling surplus estate adds additional challenges to an already over-stretched and underfunded sector.

Our expert knowledge in Further Education and the wider education sector sets us aside from the competition. Based in London with representation across our national office network, our team has the expertise to help you understand what you have and to maximise the potential of your estate.

Our clients include colleges and college groups, their banks, investors and other stakeholders as well as government institutions. We provide a full-service offering including:

  • Valuation and appraisals
  • Options appraisals
  • Building surveys including RAAC
  • Planned Proactive Maintenance (PPMs)
  • Project management
  • Planning and development
  • Purchase, sale and leasing
  • Business rates mitigation

We work alongside other advisors such as project managers, auditors, solicitors and other professional consultants to provide a comprehensive service offering.
