R.E.A.L. (Rethink Engagement and Approaches to Learning) Education was formed in 2008 to provide expertise and provision to school and local authorities to meet the needs of children and young people with complex additional needs who may be “lost to learning”, at risk of exclusion from school, or are already out of school with a placement hard to identify.
R.E.A.L offers a range of bespoke services to deliver such solutions, including independent schools, vocational provision and personalised 1:1 learning opportunities.
Investing in state-of-the–art facilities requires substantial investment so when R.E.A.L were looking at funding options for their new Alternative Provision School in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, their supplier mentioned the option to lease the fitout rather than fund it upfront.
This opened up opportunities that previously were outside of their budget, and allowed them to upgrade aspects of their premises.
The fitout included new furniture and a bespoke kitchen for student enterprise and training.
Leasing our fitout enabled us to provide exceptional facilities to set a benchmark for the students we work with, offering them the best opportunity to flourish and reach their full potential. Without this finance option we would not have been able to achieve the innovative and inspiring interior that we now have, and we would not hesitate to use this funding option again for future investments.Rich Smith, Director at R.E.A.L EducationDownload Case Study
