Merger Support

According to the Association of Colleges, there has been a substantial increase in the number of college mergers since the 2015 general election, as organisations seek to deliver efficiencies and improve their offering to learners.

As an educational establishment embarking on a merger, you may face significant challenges as you create a new institution that meets your students’ needs. Mergers can have significant implications for the procurement teams involved, and it is at times like this when expert support is needed to help you navigate complex processes and regulations.
