Northern Education

Strategic Development

insert a custom width

Transformation is high on the agenda across the whole education sector and to be successful requires additional skills and input. That is where Northern Education comes in; we have the people and processes to assist clients meet the challenges involved in developments that cannot be resolved by incremental change.

This includes school and FE College reorganisation, academy conversion, federation and partnership development, University Technical College development, re-organisation of LA School Improvement Services, support to free schools and other new forms of school organisation.

To do this work we utilise leadership, project management, auditing, analysis and facilitation skills to ensure projects have clear aims and are delivered on time with agreed outcomes.

We can provide change managers and teams 
and bring specific expertise including finance and human resources and we utilise systems and organisational development approaches to change management.

We can leave a legacy of improved capacity to deliver in our clients organisation and people by developing leadership competencies and skills and supporting change dynamics. 

We have grouped our work in Change Management under the headings of Academy Conversion, Free Schools and Trusts, Reorganisation, and Developing Federations and Partnerships.

Our Experience

Our Senior Associates have a reputation for transformational leadership and for supporting and implementing transformation for our clients. We provided transitional management support for developing the partnership between an external provider and Bradford Council

We have led and supported the development of the innovative Schools NorthEast network and project managed the All Saints College partnership with Newcastle University and The Church of England. We have supported Schools Trust Development in Northumberland

We have also managed and advised on the conversion of schools to academy status and have hands on experience in sponsoring Kearsley Academy in Bolton.
