Birmingham City Council

Education Development Plan

Shortcut to this page :

The draft Education Development Plan, (EDP), addresses Birmingham City Council’s key priority to provide sufficient, suitable education places to meet increased demand, both in Early Years and School-age education settings. It details our forecast requirements for early years and school places from 2013 and sets out how we intend to work with our education partners to secure sufficient, suitable, sustainable provision of high quality, located where needed.

The EDP is presented through 3 interlinking strategies:

  • Basic Need Strategy - how we will create the additional early years and school places we need to meet growth
  • Schools Maintenance and Sustainability Strategy – how we will direct capital investment and support effective asset management to sustainably manage our school estate
  • Full Participation and Skills strategy – how we will improve the participation of our young people beyond school into pathways that lead to employment

In order to ensure the development of our educational infrastructure is connected to the wider growth of the city, our Education Development Plan is aligned closely with housing, leisure, public health and regeneration strategies.
