We understand exactly how the education sector works in Scotland. From advising universities and colleges on day-to-day running, the delivery of strategically important initiatives, to supporting local authorities on school closure consultations and placement requests, we have a unique, three-way perspective of the regulators, representative or development bodies and a substantial proportion of the academic institutions themselves.

We offer genuine expertise in the many areas specific to education. We regularly advise our clients on governance, funding and employment issues, projects, property and commercial arrangements and educational provision issues.

Our education sector clients include: regulators; representative bodies; further and higher education institutions; local authorities and independent schools, including: Morrison's Academy, Scottish Qualifications Authority, University of Edinburgh and City of Edinburgh Council.
