Our Members

We work on behalf of our membership – made up of Higher Education Institutions, Further Education Colleges and corporate members.

By consulting with our members we are able to represent and reinforce their views by:

  • Lobbying policy makers in government departments and agencies
  • Undertaking regular research activity
  • Holding timely and issue-driven conferences and seminars
  • Publishing special reports and good practice guides
  • Writing articles and opinion pieces for publication in the media
  • Championing vocationally related issues of relevance to our membership in the media.

We also work closely with employers, government departments and national and regional agencies.
