About us

The Policy Consortium is a group of 14 experienced people with strong and varied track records in UK further education and skills. We work together and individually. Our clients include providers of education and training, sector organisations, and government agencies. We formed the consortium in 2006, though several of us have been working independently for longer than this. Between us we have a very wide range of expertise and experience, as managers, journalists, researchers, evaluators, mentors, and policy and strategy advisors. Here are some examples of the sort of work we do:

  • bulletins and policy papers
  • strategy development
  • seminars and workshops
  • policy briefings
  • fortnightly / monthly news digests
  • conference reports
  • campaign advice
  • consultation responses
  • field interviews
  • case studies
  • evaluations
