Priority School Building Programme
Key insights, advice and top tips
BCSE Briefing Seminar and reception -- save the date -- Monday, 26th September 2011- 2pm- 5pm
The Department for Education is introducing a privately financed programme to provide school facilities. The full scale of the programme is still to be finalised but is likely to include a mix of primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, sixth form colleges, and alternative provision and could cover between 100-300 schools. The total programme will be delivered in phases with the first schools scheduled to open in the academic year 2014-15.
The programme is intended to address those schools in the worst condition whilst also taking into account the requirement for additional school places and other ministerial priorities.
- The Priority School Building Programme represents a significant investment and workstream in the school estate and a major opportunity for schools, local authorities and academy trusts to renew stock.
- The seminar will share practical experience of 'batched' bids and provide an insight into successful applications.
- Expert speakers will provide in-depth advice on site issues, school re-organisation and demand issues and the importance of clarifying present condition and comfort.
- Delegates will also gain insight into the current policy context for the use of PFI/PPP within the schools sector.
Who should attend?
- All those from the public sector or private sector intending to submit applications or those hoping to work on the Priority School Building Programme.
- Key personnel from local authorities, schools, sixth form colleges or academy trusts who wish to apply for the programme by 14th October 2011.
- Those with an interest in financing the Priority School Building Programme
- Those from the supply chain who may wish to win work within the Programme.
