Our strategic education team has been appointed to provide strategic advice and undertake property due diligence for the proposed merger of four Colleges in Cheshire. West Cheshire and South Cheshire are to partner up in January 17, followed by Mid Cheshire joining in August 17 and Warrington Collegiate in Jan 18. This multiple merger is as a result of the Cheshire and Warrington post 16 area review which concluded recently.
The proposal will build on the key strengths of each College, creating a stronger organisation delivering high quality education and skills training for learners and employers. The merger will also create a financially robust College that will be more efficient and effective than the existing separate Colleges and maximise the benefits to learners and make best use of public funding.
