about us

PTP – “is one of Britain’s leading Extended School, bid writing and fundraising consultancies”

Progress through Partnership (PTP) is a focused education and regeneration consultancy that specialises in supporting schools, either individually or within clusters, to develop positive relationships with the communities they serve. Our mission is to help schools build mutually beneficial partnerships so that together they improve quality of people’s lives.

PTP is committed to the Extended School – Community Focused School movement. We are committed to the philosophy that schools are ideally placed to play a significant role not only in the lives of the young people they serve but also families and the wider community.

What We Do

We have worked on behalf of the majority of Local Authorities across England and Wales and numerous schools delivering a range of services and training programmes including:

Fundraising Masterclass for Schools – a highly successful one-day intensive bid- writing workshop that enables participants to access additional capital and revenue funding for their schools.

Next Steps – Online Bidding – Following the success of the Fundraising Masterclass for Schools, PTP now offers an advanced fundraising training programme for schools focusing on web-based funding submissions.

Bid Writing Services – PTP has successfully coordinated and written numerous large-scale capital funding submissions. We offer to schools  a complete bid writing service that takes away the responsibility of bid management from conception of a project to submission.

Building Schools for the Future (BSF) – PTP offers a consultancy service to prospective bidding consortia who are committed to build the next generation of schools that are ‘fit for purpose.

Leadership Skills for Extended Schools – a multi-session training programme covering all aspects of leading an Extended School or Community Focused School.

Conducting School and Community Consultations – this is offered either as a training package or under contract to carry out the consultation report back to the client and to make recommendations.

Schools as Community Regenerators – advice and support to schools, either individually or in clusters, who strive to develop their community dimension.
