The consultancy for education and skills – we address issues of reputation, influence and communications effectiveness
Education and skills clients
PRCA score for our practices
We are dedicated to clients whose core interests are about learning, personal development, workforce progression, and influencing change through research. We work across the education sector to support the educators and those who work with them (as advisors, business partners and suppliers, policy-shapers and funders). We undertake analysis and strategy formation to help clients build their reach, influence and reputation.
Strategy – we help clients to investigate their reputation and to devise intelligent and productive communications and engagement strategies. Led by a dedicated Director of Client Strategy (who has led communications at some of the largest UK service organisations) our strategic services help to set the framework for how clients can position themselves better for high impact reach and influence and how they better protect their reputations.
We’re keen to bring ideas, insight and interpretation to our clients and contacts – we are constantly networking, catching up with policy-makers, advisors and journalists, sponsoring new initiatives, speaking at conferences, and undertaking our own research. Our CM INSIGHTS are designed to stimulate discussion, inform debate and open up new ideas and fresh thinking.

The proposals have come in for criticism; however I would argue strongly that it’s a case of ‘about time.’ Read more.
School Funding: The Issues
“It’s refreshing to work with an agency that understands the education sector and our target audience. Communications Management has the ability to deliver coverage with fresh thinking and creative ideas to make sure that campaigns continually stand out. Recent campaigns for World Challenge have raised awareness for the brand amongst key stakeholders in schools through engaging content that resonates with our target audience. Working with Communications Management is a pleasure, they are upfront, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile.”Peter Fletcher
