Steering Groups & Networks

The Community College has been designed to address gaps in current provision. Nevertheless, we understand that the needs of communities and the local economy can change quickly. When they do, we want the Community College to be ready and prepared to respond.

To help us keep up-to-date on local needs and trends, our work is guided by a steering group and a range of networks. These provide local people and services with the opportunity to tell us about what we are getting right, what we need to improve, and what we need to do differently.

If you would like to get in touch with our steering group or want to become involved in one of our networks, please use the enquires form on our Contacts page.

About our Networks

Our networks provide the steering group with important information about what is happening on the ground. They also provide people with the opportunity to come together, to share learning, and to mentor each other.

We appreciate that attending network meetings can be time-consuming and involve travelling long distances. That is why, wherever possible, we provide remote access to these networks including telephone and video conferencing. You can also stay in touch with these networks by joining social media groups.

Current networks are listed below.
