Policy: How we support members

We provide a communication channel between colleges and key stakeholders such as the Department for Education (DfE), Ofqual, Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE), Ofsted, awarding organisations, Office for Students (OfS), and the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.

Our work involves the following.

  • We answer college queries and keep the sector updated on key policy issues.
  • We regularly respond to consultations to ensure that the college voice is represented. 
  • We also support colleges in their negotiations with local authorities about place commissioning and costs for students with EHCPs.
