As a not-for-profit initiative, we seek sponsorship funds to secure the long term future of the Awards. We invite organisations to provide financial support to develop the Green Gown Awards in return for sharing their sustainability knowledge and brand exposure.
The Education and Training Foundation was established in October 2013.
It is funded via a £27.3m grant from the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) plus £1.4m of commercial income.
We are owned by the FE and training sector. On behalf of the whole sector, three Founder Members appoint the majority of our board. The Founder members are the Association of Colleges (AoC), the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), and the Association of Adult Education and Training Organisations (AAETO), operating through the Holex and LEAFEA networks.
