AGCAS is currently seeking applications from members for eight vacant positions on the Advocacy Committee.

Following the recent launch of the AGCAS strategy, the AGCAS Board proposed the formation of a number of committees to take forward the strategic pillars.  

The Advocacy Committee is responsible for delivery of the Advocacy area of the strategy and will be working on the following strategic activities: 

•    To comprise a priority list of strategic partners with other Higher Education organisations to support AGCAS strategy and ambition.
•    To build links with these strategic partners to ensure AGCAS has and maintains visibility and presence in key policy and consultation agenda’s.
•    To support the development of a strong social media and media engagement strategy, with associated actions and priorities.
•    To support, source contributions and help in the construction of AGCAS policy and position statements. 

The committee will be expected to work with Universities UK, HEFCE, Higher Education Academy, Department of Education and other key stakeholders on a range of issues concerning higher education policy relating to careers education. 

The committee will meet four times a year and members will be appointed for a three year term. The Committee Terms of Reference are attached.
