About us

Here at the Co-operative College, we’ve always done things differently. Born over 100 years ago out of a need for radical education that fights for social justice, our mission hasn’t changed.

We are fearless thinkers, innovators and passionate about change. We are small, but have big plans to make the world a more co-operative place. One where we all work together to put learning at the heart of our communities, workplaces and homes. 

We invite you to join us as we pioneer a future that benefits more than just a select few. This is education done with, not to people. We’re committed to inspiring a whole new generation of co-operators through the values and principles set out by the founders of our movement. 

It’s a big, beautiful, colourful world out there and we should celebrate that. That’s why we’re working hard to be a fully diverse and inclusive place to work. Every day we strive to create an atmosphere where everyone feels valued, listened to, supported and where we can do our best work. Sure, there’s always more that can be done. But together with our team, learners, partners and community, we can make everyone welcome.  

We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnicity, but as members of Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups are currently under-represented in the organisation we particularly encourage applications from BAME candidates. Appointment will be based on merit alone.

If anything prevents you from following our online application process, please contact us via [email protected] so we can provide an alternative way for you to apply. We are happy to make adjustments to our hiring process to ensure we are accessible to everyone – please let us know what we can do to support you.
