AoC Regions: How we support members

The area directors and regional teams provide dedicated support to you on a local level. This includes:

  • guidance and support to principals, acting as a critical friend
  • joining-up local, regional, national and international knowledge for the benefit of your college
  • providing signposting and access to relevant project funds to support policy implementation and delivery
  • facilitating regional, national and international partnerships
  • representing and supporting college involvement with key regional partners, stakeholders and regulatory bodies
  • engaging regularly with colleges, ensuring views are fed into AoC’s policy development
  • facilitating members involvement in effective influencing of local decision makers, opinion formers, politicians and partners
  • supporting members in self-organising, regional and sub-regional networks and groups.

We provide senior leadership teams with the opportunity to network and share common interests in several core forums provided at a regional level, including the principals’ and chairs’ forum, finance directors network, quality and curriculum network, clerks and governance professionals network, and HR professionals network.

As and when required, an AoC Director will attend and contribute to board meetings and college strategic events.

The regional team work closely with principals and senior teams and are usually your first point of contact for any queries or concerns.
