Further Education Lawyers

Legal Services for the Further Education Sector

Colleges form an integral part of the education system, be they further education colleges, sixth form colleges or independent specialist colleges. The commitment that colleges show to their students' education and lifelong learning generally is key to the current and future success of the British economy and the region in which each college is based.

The college sector remains challenging for many and successful colleges need experienced and expert legal advisers who truly understand the further education and sixth form sector.
