Strategic Policy Groups

Strategic Policy Groups (SPGs) are a way for members¬† to feed into the Council’s policy work. Each aligns with a key policy aim in the Council 2025 strategy.

Each SPG is headed by a Chair with a member of the Council’s staff attached to it to facilitate and focuses on one key area of strategic interest. The SPGs will help shape Council policy in their policy areas including feeding into briefings, submissions and calls for evidence. SPG meetings are largely held online, with the possibility of face-to-face meetings where agreed. The number of meetings will vary between groups but are held at least quarterly, some meetings may be required with short notice and regular attendance at meetings is an expectation of membership.

The four SPGs are:

  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
  • Innovation and Pedagogy
  • Regulation
  • Research
