FEFM and CPL Group share a mutual passion of enhancing teaching and learning. Recognising the need to enable collaboration and communication between facilities management professionals in the further education sector, FEFM is being established with the support of CPL Group.
To assist the FEFM to deliver best in class learning environments, Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC), part of the CPL Group has a wide range of FM related purchasing agreements which are free to access. Additional support is provided by CPL Group in the form of administrative support to the regional Chair(s) to assist in the organisation of each termly meeting.
CPL Group has a charitable objective to advance education. CPL Group’s new 5-year strategic plan includes an initiative to support the formation of a network of Facilities Management professionals from the FE sector. The aspiration is to advance participants education with the sharing of good practice across all facilities management disciplines via online chats and during regional discussions at termly meetings. Where beneficial, guest speakers will also be invited to participate.
The FEFM hopes to build on the existing flourishing FM networks already in place in the Yorkshire & Humberside and North-West regions, by creating similar networks in other regions, with a longer-term aspiration of forming a national council and Further Education Facilities Management specific events.

We are currently seeking interested parties for the role of Chair and Deputy Chair in the regions of London and South-East, and the South-West. Should you be either interested in attending or willing to be considered for the roles of chair and deputy chair at a FEFMN network in your region, please get in touch. Minutes from previous meetings held by Yorkshire & Humberside and North-West networks are available here.
