Weekly AoC members webinar

AoC will be hosting a weekly members webinar as a place to share updates and progress with departments, respond to members queries in real time, and remain connected in this current physical disconnection. Keep a look out for the webinar links in each Chief Executive letter to ensure you don't miss out. Recorded copies of the webinar will be sent out in that evening coronavirus alert, for those who were unable to attend.

LinkedIn chatrooms for members

We have created three closed chatrooms on LinkedIn, moderated by AoC staff, to allow a safe space for colleges to discuss creative ideas and challenges in this dramatic time of constant change. Access to these groups is by email invite from AoC, and the first round of invites will go to those registered on AoC's CRM database. If you think you fit this criteria and haven't received an email invite with the joining link, please email Sarah Clancy or Sam Ayerst.

The three groups we are starting with are:
  • Members principals and CEOs
  • Senior leaderships (vice principals, deputy principals, heads of)
  • HR personnel (all levels)

If you are in a different role and would like us to consider forming a group for your discipline, please email Sarah or Sam.

International Jiscmail group

Our International Director, Emma Meredith runs an international Jiscmail group. It is an email network for college staff engaged in international work. The coronavirus outbreak continues to prompt many questions in relation to student and staff mobilities through programmes like Erasmus+. If you are not already a member and would find it useful to be included in these discussions please get in touch with Emma. (Updated 7 Mar)
