FE agreements in England

The vast majority of colleges in England are members of the Association of Colleges (AoC), an employers' organisation which negotiates nationally with UCU and other recognised trade unions (UNISON, ATL, ACM, T&G and GMB) in the National Joint Forum (NJF) to produce recommendations on employment issues for individual colleges to adopt.

UCU has negotiated a wide range of collective agreements within the National Joint Forum which are recommended for adoption by FE colleges in England.

UCU does not regard all these agreements as models of best practice and they should be regarded as representing minimum standards to be implemented and improved on locally. They are not intended to worsen any existing local agreements.

The agreements are arranged below as follows:
