Our aim is to develop and provide a single voice for schools’ estates issues and to provide a central hub for identifying and coordinating estates related training specifically for the school sector.
EEWG was established in response to the increasing awareness of the importance of schools’ estates issues. The Department for Education published its Good Estate Management for Schools in April 2018, and in doing so consulted with different support organisations individually. It was felt that as the organisations collectively represented a significant proportion of schools in England, it would be beneficial to work together to raise awareness, promote good practice and support schools to identify and source training needs/opportunities. EEWG would also be able to represent the views of the sector through an appropriate interface with the Department for Education.
