Who We Represent

Many ASET members are UK based Higher Education providers, and unlike many other subscription organisations our Institutional Membership covers every single member of staff in the organisation. We also have organisations with Corporate Membership who are typically employers, or placement support agencies.

Colleagues who engage with ASET typically support placement and work-based learning, or employability development; from a central team or an academic-related or academic role. Although UK based, ASET extends a warm welcome to European and International colleagues.
