The Association of Colleges (AoC) is a not-for-profit membership organisation set up in 1996 by colleges to act as their collective voice.

Association of Colleges (AoC) is a non-profit organisation, first established in 1996.  

Association of Colleges exists to represent and promote the interests of colleges and provide members with professional support services.

As such, we aim to be the authoritative voice of colleges – based on credible analysis, research, advocacy and consultation with colleges – and the first choice destination for guidance and advice for members.

Today, AoC represents and promotes the interests of more than 300 further education, sixth form, tertiary and specialist colleges across the UK.

AoC is the first port of call when seeking information about English colleges. We also work with colleges in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland through our membership of the UK Council of Colleges. Across the globe, we have partnerships with colleges in many countries including India. Our national office is in central London.  We have nine regional offices and hundreds of active networks, through which member colleges shape AoC’s policy and direction.​
