Education/not-for-profit

Education is key to economic competitiveness and social cohesion. It helps individuals and communities to reach their full potential. Governments across the world are therefore committed to raising educational attainment and skills and promoting access to lifelong learning.

Governments face common challenges in seeking to achieve their education and skills objectives.

How can new investment in learning be managed most effectively and equitably, often within decentralised governance structures? What strategies can be employed to secure resources from the private and not-for-profit sectors? What should 21st century learning organisations look like? What sort of teaching and learning should take place in them? How can out-dated management arrangements be updated or transformed?

PwC is committed to helping governments and other public agencies address these and many other complex questions. We can do so successfully because our work in the education sector is grounded in experience at all levels of government and public services. It covers:

  • Advising international bodies such as the World Bank and the European Commission;
  • Providing consultancy support to national government education departments and their agencies on major new education policies and programmes;
  • Working with state, regional and local government bodies including on organisational restructuring and privatisation; and
  • Supporting the frontline deliverers of learning services - universities, colleges and schools - particularly through our assurance services.
