29th March 2018
The Education and Skills Funding Agency announced its allocation of Condition Improvement Fund 2018-2019. It has been yet another successful year of CIF bids for Barker Associates with over £10 million funding won for our academy clients.
Over 50 of our submissions have been granted funding. Successful projects range from £50,000 refurbishment projects to more complex expansion projects.
The DfE received requests for more than £1.3 billion for over 3800 projects to this year’s round. A total of £514 million for 1556 projects across 1299 academies and sixth-form colleges has been allocated.
We are delighted with the outcomes for our clients and look forward to developing their projects in due course.
The limited funding available and the large number of applications received means that unfortunately not all projects were successful. Academies will be able to Appeal the decision from April 2018 onwards. A date will be published shortly.
