“In order to make some large scale strategic changes across a number of Post 16 establishments, CJ Learning was able to review the curriculums across a number of institutions, offer possible Post-16 collaborative solutions and help us understand potential alternative curriculum models. We needed to look at this in a very tight time frame and CJ Learning was able to work with speed and keep to all the very challenging deadlines to carry out what was a complex piece of work. “
