External memberships

Gazelle group

We are proud to be a member of the Gazelle Colleges Group.

Activate Learning is member of a number of organisations, providing opportunities to both share best practice and influence educational policy and discussions. 


Gazelle aims to transform further education through enterprise and entrepreneurship. It provides opportunities for students to engage with established entrepreneurs, young entrepreneurs and innovators, and to bring that experience into the heart of further education.

The Gazelle Colleges Group combines the experience of entrepreneurs who have succeeded in business with leaders in the further education and wider public sector.

Our membership of Gazelle has provided our students with many opportunities:

  • Joining MADE: The Entrepreneur Festival – the country’s biggest festival of entrepreneurship 
  • Bringing the StartUp Britain Bus Tour to Oxford – a chance for students to meet entrepreneurs and business advisors and receive information about the government’s StartUp Loans

Collab Group of colleges

We are members of the Collab Group, formerly 157 Group, a membership organisation representing 35 leading colleges and college groups.  
Members work together to share knowledge and expertise and shape the future of the skills sector. Members of Collab Group also work collectively to buy goods and services, resulting in savings.
