The sector finds itself in a challenging situation, dealing with changing external demands and agendas. The result is the need for organisational development, re-organisation, changes to terms and conditions, mergers and, unfortunately, closures and the resultant redundancies.

Change needs to be handled sensitively and purposefully as it will be done against a background of community and press interest, political involvement and employee relations complexities.

It is essential to combine legal compliance and best practice to establish firm foundations for the future.

With extensive experience in HE, FE, Learning Difficulty and Pre School sectors BlazeBlue can help design your optimum staffing strucure, develop the plans for change and implement them in the most effective way.
