Full membership of the Association of Colleges is open to:

  1. colleges incorporated under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 or the Education Reform Act 1988; or
  2. colleges created by either the Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills or by the Secretary of State for Education

Please contact the membership office for further information on how to join AoC. If your college does not fit either of these categories, it may still be eligible to subscribe to AoC.

As your representative body, we will:

  • Influence Government and local and national policymakers to create the environment for strong and sustainable colleges at the heart of the economy.
  • Provide high-quality, professional support, advice and intelligence to meet the needs of every member.
  • Champion and enhance the reputation of colleges and students.
  • Be open and transparent, working with, and for, all members.
  • Provide all members with a seamless service that is professional, proactive and responsive across the whole organisation.
