Collab Group | Together Today for the Skills of Tomorrow

Our Journey to Collab Group

From the release of the Foster Report in 2005 to 10 years on! See our journey as we become Collab Group...

What we do

Collab Group is a forward thinking membership organisation which represents 35 leading Colleges and College Groups who collaborate, at a local and national level.

We work with a wide range of stakeholders in the development of sustainable professional and technical skills to enable a transformation of the productive capacity of the UK economy. Our broader goal of collaborating with business, government, and the skills sector to transform the UK economy is serviced by our commercial and external relations work.

We begin and maintain relationships on behalf of our members with key industries; developing programmes of joint benefit around delivering for their skills needs and facilitating conversations and deeper partnerships between our members and partners. Our members want to deliver exactly what business, and the economy, needs from them.
