Member services

  • We produce two Briefings each month updating members on important issues. These focus on recent AoC activity, developments in the college sector, new resources available to staff and students and events of interest to teachers, students and managers.
  • We undertake independent research which we use to lobby Government departments and agencies on behalf of colleges. We disseminate this research through our communications programme and our consultations, information and research.
  • We participate in, and represent colleges on, a wide range of policy and strategy groups as part of our sector engagement remit. Working with the Technology Special Interest Group, we provide expert analysis and advocacy to represent colleges to their best advantage at national and regional levels.
