Putting staff and students first when delivering complex change programmes for universities, colleges and schools

Our work in the sector

Change management and relocation projects within the education sector can be incredibly complex. Whether space planning for a single department, or moving an entire campus, timetables for lectures and exams must be worked around, sensitive records must be considered, and official procurement standards followed. Furthermore, managing the physical assets, such as furniture, equipment, IT and storage add to the complexity. A clear strategy must be in place that communicates and engages the right people at all stages of the programme, ensuring any move or change management programme happens on time, on budget, and in line with the strict schedule of the academic year.

This is where MovePlan can help. Given the unique characteristics of the education sector, our experts will work with you to ensure that all staff and students can continue their term time with minimal disruption, and upon completion, are enabled to work in an engaging and innovative space that facilitates learning at the optimum level.

Our expertise

We have more than 30 years’ experience managing change and transformation programmes in both the public and private sectors, so we are ideally placed to provide integrated, end-to-end support to educational institutions such as universities, colleges and schools.

With a rigorous, methodical approach, our highly-experienced team, qualified in change management methodologies like Prosci ADKAR® and PRINCE2®/PMI, provides a diverse range of services, from relocation and decommissioning, to space optimisation and occupancy planning.
