Sefton Colleges

The Challenge

Work with AoC and RCU to conduct a review of  different possible models of collaboration between two General FE colleges and two Sixth Form colleges in the Sefton area of Liverpool to inform the Area Review process ahead of its formal launch.

What we did

Worked with leadership teams, governors, and external stakeholders at all four colleges to understand key drivers of success in relation to local economic, political, and community needs in order to determine shortlist of options for further investigation.  Detailed curriculum and financial analysis, together with sourcing of local demographic and travel to learn patterns, informed a robust analysis of the viability of different options.


Detailed report with analysis of options and reasoned recommendations to deliver improved, and economically  viable, provision of 16-18 education in the Sefton region.
