AoC South East


AoC’s South East region (AOSEC) has 62 member colleges. We help our member colleges to deliver social and economic benefit to people, businesses and communities on the ground. We also make sure they are fully engaged in debates about the sector so they have a say in AoC policy.

Our Mission

AOSEC exists to represent and work with colleges across the South East to inform, support and connect.

Our Vision is to:

Offer a responsive service for member colleges;
communicate effectively with each member college;
be a powerful advocate of our FE community;
enable colleges to have a positive impact upon key decision makers;
deliver a service that creates opportunities for learning and enables change;
Be an energetic organisation which raises the aspirations of its staff and its membership.
