Welcome to Education HR and Employment support

The education sector brings with it many specific employment problems, many of which arise from the manner in which the individual school or college was created - with inherited TUPE rights and beneficial pension arrangements.

However, the need to properly manage staff in a unionised environment to ensure a high quality of service in a flexible manner creates very difficult discrete problems as well.

Our multi-disciplined team of Solicitors and Human Resources professionals are retained advisors to many schools, academies and colleges and as such are familiar with the day to day problems and employment issues which they face.

We work together to ensure you receive commercial, practical and pragmatic advice and support.

The sector is varied, but a combining feature is the need to ensure cost efficiency within largely fixed budgets.

As such, our packages designed specifically for SMEs take the risk out of managing employees and are often a perfect solution for all apart from the largest educational establishments.

For more information on how we can help, please get in touch.
