Education Consultancy

Education consultancy is a service where the Apteriors team holds the most expertise, over the past 15 years we have provided exceptional design, guidance and support to approximately 500+ schools and educational institutions nationwide, in order to improve teaching and learning outcomes for a range of student cohorts.

When designing a school’s interior, there are several important factors to consider in order to create a space that is conducive to learning. First and foremost, the layout of the classroom should be flexible and adaptable in order to accommodate different teaching styles and activities. This might involve incorporating different types of furniture, such as desks, tables, comfortable seating areas and apparatus that encourage learning through play. Additionally, lighting and temperature should be carefully considered, as these factors can affect student focus and attention. Other design elements to consider include acoustics, technology integration, and accessibility for students with disabilities. We co-ordinate with all  project sub-contractors meticulously to ensure that the FF&E co-ordinates with the other services seamlessly.  By taking a holistic approach to classroom design and considering the needs of both teachers and students, schools can create learning environments that are engaging, supportive, and conducive to academic success. Apteriors are one of the few preferred suppliers on the Department for Education’s Furniture Framework. Our work across the education sector has been recognised and achieved many awards with our project colleagues.
