The Welsh Education Partnership

A joint venture – a long-term partnership – between the Development Bank of Wales (Welsh Government) and Meridiam to design, build, finance, operate and maintain education infrastructure over 25 years.

The objectives of the WEP programme are to establish a stable and long-term partnership that delivers education and community facilities in line with the Well-being of Future Generations Act, providing demonstrable value for money to the public sector and transparency to national and local stakeholders.

WEPCo’s role is to facilitate the delivery of up to 30 new education facilities (primarily schools and colleges) in Wales using the Mutual Investment Model (MIM) developed by the Welsh Government to finance major capital projects.

Furthermore, the Partnership seeks to develop, invest, and manage projects that offer additional beneficial outcomes for local communities through a bespoke Skills Academy Framework.

Social Value & ESG sit at the very heart of our approach and we are committed to working with our supply chains to deliver public education infrastructure that:

  • Improves the economic, social, environmental, and cultural wellbeing of Wales
  • Delivers sustainable and resilient infrastructure that improves the quality of people’s lives
  • Drives sustainable growth and aspiration, creating opportunities through trade, investment, jobs and skills
  • Embraces and champions the diversity, culture, and pride of Wales
