FE Colleges


Holistic met Paul Corcoran, Chief Executive, and Andrew Hartley, Business Development Director, to discuss the potential for the development process at Sheffield College.  A five day interview process ensued, leading to the production of a 50 page implementation study recommending a staged four year plan.  This included building an alumni database, improving communications with the wider community, building business links, and leading to a long term fundraising development operation.  Various appendices listed CRM database options, prospect research companies, job descriptions, professional organisations, and an anticipated income and expenditure stream.


“The Holistic Consultant spent a week meeting our key internal and external stakeholders.  He subsequently produced a detailed implementation study giving us clear guidance on how to establish a development function for Sheffield College, tied into the college’s history and ethos.  This was well received by our Governors and is being embedded in our plans for the future.”
