Further & higher education


Our education team provides expert advice in the higher and further education sectors on a full range of issues such as governance, outsourcing, procurement, employment, restructuring, site developments, real estate issues, complex project work, information technology and intellectual property.

The Sintons education team has market-leading expertise across all disciplines, as well as a deep understanding of the evolving challenges facing educational institutions.

Educational institutions are experiencing difficult times as public funding is reduced and student expectations rise – we can help our clients in this sector to make the most of their existing infrastructure and develop new estate, assist them with navigating their way around staff employment issues and support innovative ideas and projects.

Our team can help educational institutions of any size thrive in this increasingly competitive market by anticipating their needs and helping them to meet them. We can provide them with relevant sector insight and advice when it is needed. Our clients in this sector are now operating as large businesses and we actively help them to maximise on opportunities in commercialisation and innovation.  

Whilst we have a sound overview of sector issues and policy, we work closely with each of our clients to ensure we have a deep understanding of their organisation and the particular issues and goals they have. Our aim is to support each individual client in delivering their own objectives and to provide practical and strategic advice and support to enable them to respond to changes in legislation, policy and sector trends as they happen.

The Sintons team members pride themselves on offering exceptional value for money and clear no-nonsense advice to enable our clients to make effective decisions. We work collaboratively with our clients as part of their team and are therefore able to offer clear direction to help them manage both external and internal pressures.       

We appreciate that our clients in this sector are now operating in a global market and we can help you to build a global outlook into your strategy.

If we can assist you in any way, or if you want to discuss the needs of your educational organisation, please contact us at any time.
