What we do

Collab Group represents leading Colleges and College Groups who aim to shape the technical education sector through policy and commercial activities.

There are two main pillars to our work: policy influencing and commercial activities.

On policy engage with our colleges, government and industry to influence the solutions to policy implementation. We have developed positions on a range of issues that we see as crucial to harnessing the full Power of our national technical education system. These issues include Brexit and the industrial strategy, the implementation of T-levels, the apprenticeship levy and devolution.

On the commercial side, we work with our member colleges to deliver a nationwide apprenticeship a training services to major national employers. We offer commercial training services for organisations looking to bring new talent into their business and we also support companies that are looking to upskill or retrain their existing workforce. We support employers in key industrial sectors to make the most of their apprenticeship levy as we work in partnership to strategically plan their current and future talent needs.
