Whitehouse Launches New Education Practice

The Whitehouse Consultancy has launched a key sector Practice, focussing on education and children’s services.

The Education Practice includes team members who have held key education roles across national and local government and who have sat on boards for academies, schools and education settings spanning: early years, primary, secondary, further and higher education, and also special educational needs and disabilities.

It builds upon the consultancy’s work representing multi-academy trusts, schools, professional bodies and SEND charities.

Chairman and former Children’s Services Cabinet Member for the Isle of Wight Council, Chris Whitehouse, said:

‘With so much talent and experience in the education sector at The Whitehouse Consultancy, it seemed a natural progression to set up an Education Practice.  We are the best in the business at helping education clients, with specialists in education policy, communications, media and crisis.

The Practice will be led by Paul Church, Associate Director and Head of Education, who currently chairs the industry’s PRCA Education Group and was elected as an inaugural member of the industry-leading Public Affairs Board.
