Bedfordshire BSF Programme

Originally commissioned by the County Council to prepare their strategy for change Part 1 and undertake consultation, following the Government‘s decision to create unitary authorities. We were commissioned by Bedford Borough Council to support the development of their BSF programme. The role included the preparation of the strategy for change, engagement with the schools, review of the three tier education strategy, programme development and funding negotiations. Our team was able to develop a programme solution for the Borough which increased their potential funding from £190 million to £260 million.
