Successful CIF Bid - Maths Block Refurbishment
Successful CIF Bid - Maths Block Refurbishment

The Education Funding Agency [EFA] have published their detailed information to applicants.  To be successful it’s imperative that academies align their bid with the EFA’s stated priorities.  Choosing the right bid is just as important as the evidence which is presented to support the project.  CBC Education can advise you on which bid is likely to be successful

EFA priorities this year are firmly in the health and safety and compliance category.  The key to success is to target these areas and provide strong evidence to support the need.  Strong evidence is often independent assessments from experts who are bound by a code of practice.  As Chartered Surveyors CBC Education are well respected for providing impartial and technically sound advice.  This year more than any however we believe that the EFA will be looking at academies strategic plans to assess whether they have a long term strategy to manage their premises.

CBC Education have an enviable record in achieving successful bids.  We are already working with several academies in Somerset and the South West to develop a strategic plan and gather the strong evidence required.
