BACH is Run by its Members For its Members. Members lead training from across Construction, Building & Engineering services. If your learners create and maintain the Built Environment, then BACH Membership is for you. 

BACH Membership is a key that enables and empowers Leaders and Managers of Construction, Building & Engineering services, Civils and Groundworks, Retrofit, Modern Methods of Construction and off-site manufacturing to achieve the very best outcomes for their Learners, Students and those upskilling. For over 40 years, BACH represented those in Further Education, but now it encompasses Members from High Education, Private Training Providers, Employers and Trade Groups.

In recent years it has gone from strength to strength with over 170 Colleges and other Training Providers. With leaders from Ofsted, IfATE, and other major players in Construction Training attending BACH's two annual conferences, it continues its enviable tradition of delivering excellent CPD and networking opportunities for the Best Informed Construction Heads. 

Many of our Members face the same challenges, from Staff shortages to Defunding Level 2 and BTECs. Or from applying the New Apprenticeship Standards to having the time to create new courses for Retrofitting & Greening the Workforce to the use of new equipment and materials. 

If you lead Construction Training in the UK, at a college, university, private training provider or in-house you should join the Best Informed Construction Heads.  Become a Member

BACH is at the heart of building support from the likes of CLC, CITB and CCAFT to influence the Government and other decision-makers.  With your support, we can keep developing channels of communication that can explain to the funders and policymakers the practical challenges of teaching those who will be the next generation to create and maintain the Built Environment and tackle the harmful changes to our climate and natural environment. 

BACH now welcomes Associate Members from trade bodies, those supplying training & building tools and materials, experts from the green economy, plus others that are striving to have a fully trained workforce across our combined industries.
