We represent employers, stakeholders and staff working in higher education (HE) across the UK, including universities, university colleges and colleges of higher education.
HE gives learners the opportunity to acquire both vocational and academic qualifications, as well as softer skills that have proven to be of equal importance in economic competitiveness, including entrepreneurial, problem-solving and team work skills. These skills need to be encouraged by the HE workforce to enable learners to reach their full potential. This is why it’s important for HE employers to recruit dedicated, knowledgeable and highly-skilled teachers, tutors and mentors.
If you would like to learn more about the HE Sector see our HE constituency map.
The map also provides a summary of the policy context for HE in each of the four nations of the UK and it details the main organisations and partners for development of the HE workforce.
