Join the CHE

Are you interested in co-creating an education co-operative to deliver conferences and public events, to run short courses and facilitate transformative popular education, building on the CHE’s long-standing tradition as an educational institution rooted in community activism while maintaining academic rigour?

This is a great time to become a member of CHE and get involved! You can read more about our plans on CHE’s Open Collective Page.

You can join CHE for £2 – £10 per month, based on how much feels comfortable for each member. However, we do not want finances to be a barrier, so please get in touch if you’d like to discuss other arrangements.

We offer free membership for staff and many volunteer posts. CHE hosts occasional Members’ Meetings as an opportunity for members to be involved in the organisation.

To join CHE, please complete the Membership Form.

Please read all the instructions and questions in this form clearly, as it includes important information on membership terms, structure and payment processing. Any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing us at

We are also looking for people to join CHE as directors and charitable trustees. This role will involve being responsible for CHE’s strategy, governance, compliance and making sure CHE is doing what it was set out to do. If you are interested in being part of this, please contact
