Chris Pickup Associates was founded in 1996 by Chris Pickup as an independent education provider. The company drew on the wide and well established experience of its founder to offer schools support of the highest quality.
We have earned an excellent reputation for our work and we are now one of the leading providers of training, support and advice for schools in the North West of England. As the company’s name has become more well-known we have expanded across the UK and abroad.
Whilst our focus of expertise centres on Early Years and Primary Education we increasingly work with secondary schools.
In 2005 the company entered educational publishing and our first publication became an immediate success with schools. We have since released five additional publications in our 'Let's Keep It Simple' Series.
In 2011 we opened our subsidiary company Excellence in Education Ltd. and lauched our advisory service for schools. For the last 6 years we have provided schools in our advisory service with a high level of valuable professional support and advice.
