All the added benefits of 2019 and 2020 remain, see below

In 2019 BACH decided to allow one Named Member to attend the National Development Day in November free of charge, saving a Member £100.  Other Named Members received a 50% discount.

In 2020, pre-COVID, this offer was extended to all Named Members

Plus in 2020 we added two more great benefits and still retain our £295 membership fee.You can now name as many appropriate people in your College or Merged College Group - you now do not have to pay extra for more than two Named Members.  Every Named member can attend any Regional Event Free and access the Free or Reduced members rate for national events.

Only BACH Members can attend Regional meetings

Only current BACH named members and invited presenters are able to attend regional meetings and CPD events. In the past, we know some other Construction Heads have attended. However, to be fair to paid-up members the only exception we will make is for those looking to join BACH who are allowed to sample one regional event. With our new membership and event booking systems, we can monitor attendance.


Membership is available to organisations that offer education and training in the construction curriculum including construction craft-based training and/or the professional and technical subjects of the Diploma and/or Higher Education.

If your organisation is a work based or employer training provider in the construction industry, you may also apply for full membership.

2021 for £295.  Consultants £75, Retired £12
