Services for Post 16 Providers
Oakleigh are committed to education and to the post-16 sector. We can work directly with you on your priorities and support you to improve the learner experience; respond effectively to address new challenges; successfully bring about change internally and/or in partnership with others and maximise benefits from new systems and processes
What services can Oakleigh offer?
A consideration of the internal and external landscape and context in which you are working. An appraisal of your organisation’s strengths and weaknesses against new models for delivery where various options will be analysed against key criteria to provide recommendations about the strongest option/s to achieve your goals and objectives.
Feasibility studies consider a chosen path or recommended options/s in depth. An options review for a college’s future delivery model would include a detailed look at curriculum, quality, finance, property and HR.
Scoping the future, particularly future learner demand, in order to help plan to resource it is a key area we can help with whether you are a single provider or part of a consortium. Please refer to our services and product sheets on scoping, planning and commissioning.
We bring business planning expertise together with sector knowledge to provide you with robust business plans to take you forward and provide reassurance and confidence to your board and funders. Our consultants have applied HM Treasury 5 Case Business models to education particularly in the Welsh post 16 sector.
Education cases for property strategies and capital build
Many post 16 providers are re-assessing their property strategies. We can support you in revisiting the education case and considering alternative options for meeting future demand using some of the tools and techniques outlined above.
Change Management and Organisational Development
We use robust and proven approaches to ensure successful and enduring management of change, undertake reviews and provide recommendations across a range of services independently or inclusively including reviews of staffing and HR, curriculum, MIS, quality assurance systems and business processes.
Business Process Re-design
BPR offers the opportunity for your organisation to achieve a goal or set of goals through transformation. We provide a tailored and structured approach which helps ensure a carefully managed and controlled process providing a level of comfort and confidence to your board, staff and learners.
Oakleigh are able to provide support right through the procurement process from ensuring the scope of services are properly understood, defined and communicated to managing service provider selection and defining the new working relationships.
