At our AGM held 30 June 2022, our CEO, Neil Calvert, launched the College's new, three-year strategy.

The strategy sets out our aims and aspirations for the next three years, and in true co-operative style, was developed over a number of months by staff and trustees, and incorporates member feedback and ideas gathered at dedicated strategy events.

While in no way a radical departure from the co-operative values and work you've come to expect from the College - what the new strategy does is clearly articulate the who, why, what, and how of our organisation. We're clear about our guiding principles, aims for the future, and the actions we'll take to help get us there.

Our strategy has been broken down into four key themes:

  • Co-operative Learning
  • Thought Leadership
  • International Co-operative Development
  • Youth Empowerment

Within each of these themes, all the work we do will cover one of more of the following curriculum areas:

  • Co-operative leadership
  • Co-operative values and behaviours
  • Concern for community

By streamlining our focus, we can concentrate on the areas where our distinctive learning approach can make the most impact. The strategy also recognises the importance of working in partnerships - with co-operators, educators and others who share our values and objectives. 

With ongoing inequality and social injustice in our society, the world needs co-operation now more than ever. Our new strategy aims to put co-operative learning at the heart of our communities and workplaces both in the UK and abroad to help tackle these issues.
