Date(s) - 12/10/2017
10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Northbrook College



This network is strongly recommended for colleges wanting to keep abreast of developments in HE provision within the FE setting. It supports staff with management responsibility for the provision of higher education in colleges.

Each meeting aims to include input from key stakeholders such as HEFCE and QAA as well as policy updates from the AoC college HE team.

The Student Loan Company and colleges from inside and outside the region have attended offering insight and updates.

Group discussions feature at every network, giving delegates the opportunity to raise any concerns or challenges, as well as share best practice with the group members.

Mike Ridout, former Associate Vice Principal and Dean of HE at Sparsholt College, chairs this network and is invaluable in the creation of each agenda.
