Sue is the Chief Operating Officer for one of our CCG clients and is responsible for working closely with GP practices to influence the commissioning of improved services for patients at a local level.

  Michelle - School Improvement & Transformation Lead  
Client:Michelle - School Improvement & Transformation Lead
Sector:Local Government
Sub-Sector:Education

Overview: Aventis were engaged by the Lead for Primary School Improvement and Transformation at a Local Authority. The Council in question was seeking niche expertise for several school improvement consultants to support a major project focused at improving achievement at key stage 2 & 3 levels across all schools. This was no easy task as the council required ex National Strategies experience, specifically for writing, reading and math, and such consultants were in very high demand and hard to find. Aventis utilised their deep networks to identify suitable  and available associates. 

Michelle says: “It gives me great pleasure to testify to the Aventis experience which has always exceeded my expectations. In a market which is notoriously difficult to identify readily available school improvement professionals with proven track records, Aventis have delivered every time. They have an ability to really get under the skin of the skills and type of person we require, which ultimately results in the engagement of an interim who shares our passion and commitment. Behind the scenes I know they go the extra mile for me to ensure they deliver and it is this commitment which gives me so much confidence in the quality of service and solution I will receive. I am able to gain access to their associate network, many of whom are not readily accessible on the open market and all associates come with referenced backgrounds. Whenever I have any queries, these are dealt with quickly and effectively, and I feel very reassured knowing that I can call on Aventis to help me resolve capacity issues, or engage with transformational experts at short notice. Aventis really do take on my needs as their priority and I will continue to work with them time and time again”

This was a challenging assignment given the mandate included improving service delivery whilst achieving significant cost and efficiency savings.

Carol says: “Aventis have a refreshing approach to interim management – demonstrating sincere integrity and honesty from the outset. They empathised with my dilemma and understood the unique solution I urgently required. They then quickly presented me with a short-list of several associates who were all suitably aligned to the challenges we faced. The selected interim, Geoff, has been excellent, a real support to myself and the wider team, who have themselves benefited from his daily enthusiasm and expertise. Aventis have been a great support, would recommend them wholeheartedly and I look forward to working with them again”
