In addition to the UK-wide EAUC governance structures, the EAUC Scotland office have our own governance system, which is detailed in the Terms of Reference available to download below. This includes a strategic steer from our Advisory Group, consisting of two representatives from FE institutions and two from HE institutions. The four current Advisory Group members are introduced below. 

Our Annual General Meeting and quarterly Forum meetings, open to anyone who works in or with the Further or Higher Education Sector, offer the opportunity for everyone to contribute to the activities and direction of the EAUC Scotland office, and discuss key interests and issues for Scottish FHE sustainability.

Upcoming Forum Meetings are listed on the EAUC Events page. Find out more about our Forum meetings and previous meeting minutes in the Downloads from this page. If you would like to access previous minutes which are not shown here, please contact us.
