Education systems and institutions around the world are making smart investments to improve performance. We must continue to prepare all learners to thrive in work and life, and in complex and changing environments. But identifying quality and equity improvement strategies and realising them at scale is not easy.

Our consultants work with providers, policymakers, representative bodies and regulators operating across the full breadth of the education system – from early childhood education to schools, vocational education and training, universities and other higher education institutions.

Our work at a systems level helps governments design and deliver impactful education policies and associated evaluation, regulation and funding. While our work with individual education providers supports their strategy development, operations, culture and transformation initiatives. Our work is enhanced by our leading labour market analysis tools.

Our consulting work includes

Higher education

Our education consultants work with universities and private providers on their biggest strategic challenges: institutional strategy, research focus, system performance, educational direction, student experience and change through people. Through Cubane Consulting – a Nous Group company – we can also help university administrators make informed strategic decisions and continuously assess results.

Vocational education and apprenticeships

As the UK grapples with digitisation and demographic changes, the FE system is instrumental in ensuring our workforce meets the needs of individuals and employers. Our consultants work with governments as well as FE providers and registered training organisations on strategic programs, digital systems and leadership development. Our work covers the whole system and brings insights informed by data, stakeholder opinion and policy settings. Our partnership with Burning Glass Technologies gives us unrivaled insight into job market trends and skills gaps.


Schools and government departments must work together to ensure the system is optimally structured and managed, and that teachers and principals are well-equipped to lead and inspire learners. Our consultants work with governments on education architecture and policy reform, with system managers to drive system-wide improvements, and with school leaders to improve performance, governance, strategy and parent engagement.

Early childhood education

Leading early childhood providers need to deliver outstanding educational services in the context of intense and growing demand, strict national standards and high cost pressures. Our consultants work with government agencies and major service providers to overcome these pressures, and deliver better education outcomes at scale.
