Young people need to be nurtured in a clean, safe environment and have access to the best facilities possible to encourage their development and learning. Star Group understands that the education sector needs support from its facilities management company to make the most of the limited resources to deliver best in class facilities.
In the higher education market, where students, parents and guardians are increasingly looking for value for money when choosing which university or college to attend, competition is growing and the provision of excellent facilities can provide a clear differentiator. According to research commissioned by the Association of University Directors of Estates, eight out of 10 UK students say that facilities are a key factor in choosing a university, only out-ranked by the course itself.
Great facilities also help to make somewhere a great place to work and can help to attract and retain staff. Many schools, colleges and universities are increasing their revenue by hiring out facilities to businesses and community organisations.
