Their finding will determine future Government spending programmes and priorities.
They will run the rule over 22,300 schools and FE colleges – around 70,000 buildings – from now through to December 2025.
This programme follows on from CDC1 which was completed successfully from 2017 to 2019.
The data collected from the site visits across England will ensure a robust evidence base and will continue to help the DfE to prioritise future funding of the maintained school estate.
Vince Jubb, Communications and Stakeholder Management Lead – Condition Data Collection Programme, Department for Education said:“ Maintaining an up to date and accurate evidence base of the condition of the school estate is vital in helping us to review and prioritise funding.
“The collaboration the teams demonstrated and the way they worked with schools throughout the first programme and the recent pilot was exemplary and we are pleased to be moving into the delivery phase of this next programme.”
