HE in FE Practitioner Group Meeting

The third HE in FE Practitioner Group Meeting of the academic year chaired by David Hillier, Assistant Principal - HE and Business Development, South Thames Colleges Group, was held on 7th May. The meeting featured a presentation from Arti Saraswat from Senior Policy Manager, Higher Education at the Association of Colleges (AOC).

After a warm welcome from David Hillier, South Thames Colleges Group, the group discussed some questions that were asked before the meeting took place. Discussion included student fee refunds/compensation and the UCAS request to roll over their advertised offer to 21/22 and how colleges are responding to this. 

Delegates then heard from Arti Saraswat from the AoC. Arti presented to the group on HE policy updates including College HE during and post pandemic, OfS regulation in the pandemic, Covid-19 guidance and what’s next. Arti provided some useful resources and guidance and also answered any questions that the group had.
