Our strategic aim is to harness the power of the group to be a recognised national leader in education and skills.
Our Group structure enables each organisation to be focused on its own learners, customers, colleagues and stakeholders, supported by the professionally shared services that operate across the group. It also underpins the scope to safely expand, adjust and develop in support of communities, policy and economic needs.
As a charity with clear social objectives, our structure also allows cost-effective sharing of service and operational delivery at quality standards, and the reinvesting of surpluses for our learners, to produce better achievements and outcomes.
