Consultancy for Education and Social Development

Merganser Consulting, and its predecessor organisations have been active in the field of consultancy for nearly 30 years.  During that time we have seen significant changes in the role of the consultant in supporting and working with the client.  But we continue to believe that those who have deep and extensive experience as practitioners are best able to support others.  Our experience has also convinced us that – to be most effective – learning is two way.  Consultancy is a particular skill and part of our task is to promulgate that expertise.  Usually the most effective consultant is the one who works him or herself out of a job! We have worked on projects funded by (amongst others):
  • World Bank
  • Inter-American Development Bank
  • Caribbean Development Bank
  • European Union
  • UK Department for International Development
  • UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office
  • UK Department for Education
In various of these projects we have worked closely with professional partners.  These have included KPMG, PA Consulting, PwC, EY and others. Our work has been conducted in many countries, around the world.  We have worked in most European countries, in Africa, in Asia and we have a particular specialism in working with Caribbean countries.    With our senior level contacts in many countries, we are experienced in international education brokerage, for example in identifying appropriate education placements, and in supporting and advising on education investment.
