Specialists in Further Education

Nationally recognised expertise

Further Education

Burnetts acts for Further Education Colleges throughout England, including all the FE Colleges in its home county of Cumbria. 

The firm has consistently been ranked as one of the Top 5 legal advisers to the sector in the national league table published by the the Further Education Financial Yearbook and is also an approved supplier to the Crescent Purchasing Consortium.

The focus of our work in FE has been in employment law and corporate governance as well as in advising on campus redevelopments, for example this such as this £60 million project at Blackburn College. 

However, as FE colleges move increasingly into Higher Education provision, we have drawn on our experience in the HE sector to deliver advice on intellectual property, joint ventures and funding agreements.
