FE College Accreditation Fee Consultation Process

Following an upsurge in interest in developing a stream of work around Further Education (FE) Colleges in 2020-2021, CoS UK is now consulting the CoS network on charging an accreditation fee (£450) for FE Colleges when they are recognised as a FE College of Sanctuary. This follows an earlier consultation with several FE Colleges in summer 2020 which indicated that FE Colleges felt the fee was appropriate and they were positive about the introduction of a fee.

A fee would enable CoS UK to better support local groups and FE Colleges engage with the sanctuary awards process, develop regional/national online events, maintain the website and publicise and share good practice.

Please read the full background document (FE College Fee Proposal Justification)  outlining the rationale of the fee and how it would be used to further this stream. To provide your feedback on the proposed accreditation fee, please complete the survey here.

The consultation will close on 16 April 2021.
