The Education SIG represents the interests of members working in facilities management in educational establishments. Our group was formed in October 2003.
Our remit and purpose is to bring together members who work in the many different FM areas within education, such as;
· Local Education Authorities
· Service suppliers to the Education Sector
· Consultants and professional advisers to the Education Sector
· and others with a professional interest in the built learning environments
of the Education Sector
We organise events to bring people together, to share ideas and exchange information. Events are sometimes held jointly with SIGs or Regional Groups.
We have established links with the Association of University Directors of Estates (AUDE), the Association of Colleges (AoC) and the Independent School Bursars Association (ISBA). Some of our members have given presentations, hosted workshops and written articles about the issues facing FMs working in the sector. In the past, we have also supported the Education Resources and Facilities Forum events each November.
Our website pages show examples of what we have done to date, with information on our plans for the future. If you would like to join us on the steering committee, please contact a committee member – the list is shown on this website.
As chair of the SIG, and on behalf of the committee, I look forward to welcoming you to one of educational / networking events, and to your contributions on the website Forum pages.
