Condition Improvement Fund 2019 to 2020
Annual bidding window is now open for applications for 2019 to 2020.
The annual window for applications from academies, small multi-academy trusts and sixth form colleges for funds from the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) has opened for 2019 to 2020. In order to bid for CIF, an eligible establishment must be
An open academy or sixth-form college as at 1 September 2018
A school with a signed academy order as at 1 September 2018, converting by 1 April 2019 to receive funding.
A multi-academy trust with fewer than 5 academies.
The window for applications will not be open for long, therefore it is important that academies are prepared for this brief window of opportunity. Those establishments that have previously applied should consider feedback received to bolster further applications as the success of bids is closely linked to the quality of the submission.
The most successful bids are generated by specialist property consultants such as Strictly Education’s partner Surveyors to Education – S2e, who have a proven record in supporting academies with their CIF bids.
