With an income of around £6million, we provide a range of development and resourcing services for the further education sector, working closely with colleges and other partner organisations to support excellence across the sector.
Our value add services include recruitment of permanent and interim staff, event management and expert training and consultancy, as well as a successful specialist job board. Through our unique position as part of the sector membership organisation, we are truly at the heart of the further education sector. We work closely with our network of education leaders, as well as with our colleagues at the Association of Colleges, to shape and deliver an impactful, demand-led offer.
Our current Chair will soon complete his term of office and we are seeking a new Chair to provide leadership and direction to the AoC Create Board. The Chair will be responsible for the overall governance, strategic direction and commercial success of the company, working with our forward-looking Managing Director to ensure that our services are innovative and responsive to sector needs. You will play a strategic role in aligning our services to our key business aims of increasing our market share, building the reputation of AoC and creating a strong and sustainable FE sector.
