Strategic Alliance

The Strategic Alliance is a partnership between the University of Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) and Gloucestershire College. The aim is to make Higher Education (HE) more open to students with clear progression routes and the chance to study closer to home. It is also important to the alliance to build strong links with businesses to ensure that the students from the three organisations fulfil local business needs.

The partnership was formed in February 2012 and a ten year Memorandum of Understanding was signed in 2013. It commits the organisations to work together over the next decade.

The Alliance works to raise the quality, range and accessibility of Higher Education in the county and beyond. It is important to the Alliance to understand the local employer needs, if you can help us form an accurate understanding of what skills you need now and in the future then please contact Kathryn Wagstaff.
