For all our clients we offer an unmatched capacity to shorten the learning curve to provide a comprehensive overview of the education market and to put business opportunities into perspective.

How we help

Clients engage us to:

  • Accelerate growth plans. With current market dynamics presenting opportunities across many sectors of the education industry to accelerate future growth, we can provide an overview of the key verticals within the UK and principal international markets, and an in-depth analysis of the competitive landscape for each segment. This helps identify your position in the wider commercial landscape and the market sectors that may be most easily accessible, either through extending your existing offers or by acquisition.
  • Identify acquisition opportunities. Building a pipeline of potential acquisition targets, which reflects a company’s broader strategic goals, is increasingly seen as a preferred approach over opportunistic acquisitions. We help clients develop a pipeline of targets that map onto their acquisition criteria, including an in-depth analysis of each asset.
  • Assess competitors. Knowing who your competitors are, and what they offer, can help you create strategies that take advantage of your competitors' weaknesses, and improve your own business performance. We work with clients to identify the strengths and weaknesses of current competitors and new entrants, and the opportunities and threats they present, underpinned by data-driven evidence.
