Facilities services in the education sector

Young people need to be nurtured in a clean, safe environment, and have access to the best facilities possible to encourage their development and learning. OCS understands that the education sector needs support from its facilities management company to make the most of limited resources to deliver best in class facilities.

In the higher education market, where students, parents and guardians are increasingly looking for value for money when choosing which university or college to attend, competition is growing and the provision of excellent facilities can provide a clear differentiator.

OCS works with schools, colleges and universities to provide the highest standard of facilities through bespoke service solutions, which are tailored to meet their budget and deliver the best possible value. There is no 'one size fits all' solution for the education sector.

Great facilities also help to make somewhere a great place to work and can help to attract and retain staff. Many schools, colleges and universities are increasing their revenue by hiring out facilities to businesses and community organisations. An attractive, well-run facility boosts income and OCS can often use its expertise to support business development and income-generation ideas.

With extensive experience of providing, cleaningsecuritywaste management, and a range of other services to the education sector, OCS understands the complex range of spaces and the diverse needs of a wide range of customers.

Sustainability is also a key objective for the education sector, and OCS supports this aim by working in partnership with you to meet your goals through, for example, chemical-free cleaning, using local and environmentally-friendly food sources, reducing waste to landfill, and providing work experience and training programmes for students.
