Independent Providers’ SIG

About the Independent Providers’ SIG

The Independent Providers’ SIG brings together colleagues from independent/private providers of HE. This group is a place to seek/provide support and mentorship for colleagues new to this part of the sector, particularly those transitioning from the state sector.

What can you expect from the Independent Providers’ SIG?

– This SIG supports the inclusion of the independent sector as a credible part of the HE landscape, and acknowledges those working in this part of the sector as highly skilled professionals.

– As a member of this SIG, there will also be opportunities to collaborate with other AHEP SIGs to share learning from the independent sector into the state sector for the betterment of all.
