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, webinars and seminars
- Publishing special reports, discussion papers 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 national and sector media
We also work closely with employers, government departments and national and regional agencies.
UVAC has four levels of membership:
- Full (higher education institutions)
- Associate (further and tertiary education colleges)
- Corporate Supporter (businesses and organisations)
- Individual Membership
