Professional Services – Education Grant Applications

Preparation and submission of Condition Improvement Fund (CIF)
Grant Applications for Academy Schools
Grant Application


Thanks to our extensive experience in education environments, we support academies to access funds they need to maintain and improve their school buildings.

We understand how onerous these applications can be and the amount of time and effort required to collate a professional bid with a credible chance of success. Our in-house experts collate all the required supporting information in conjunction with the school.

We write and submit the CIF bids at zero cost to the education funding agency (EFA).  Our project delivery fees are incorporated into the funding application, which means no upfront costs.

Our Services

We can help secure funding for:

  • Refurbishments and Extensions
  • Building Compliance
  • Energy Efficiency Reviews
  • Heating Upgrades and Repairs
  • Roof Repairs

Our Approach

Our Partnership works as follows:

  • We co-ordinate and attend a no obligation meeting with the school
  • Undertake a building condition survey
  • Liaise with our specialist supply partners and provide budget costs to include in the funding submission
  • Complete funding applications in partnership with you
  • Upon confirmation of funding, we would act as lead designer, project manager, contract administrator and principal designer in accordance with the Construction Design and Management (CDM) Regulations 2015
  • We ensure that you remain up-to-date every step of the way and the works are carried out in a safe and professional manner.

Client Feedback

“On behalf of Cheshire West and Chester Council I as Client, have worked with Tim Norbury from EW Professional Services on a number of primary school extensions over the past two years taking them from feasibility stage through to completion. Tim provided a high quality professional service and I found him to be extremely conscientious, approachable and helpful when not only dealing with myself but also the head teachers, school staff and governors. Tim was a constant presence on site making sure that each scheme ran smoothly whilst also ensuring that the Client and end user were fully briefed at all stages.”
