Welcome to the British Association of Cleaning in Higher Education. BACHE was launched in the spring of 2004 with HEFCE funding and provides a forum for Cleaning professionals and is therefore the primary association providing support for building cleaning and associated services within the Further and Higher Education sector.

BACHE aims to standardise training for cleaning staff (in further and higher education institutions), recognising the importance of professional cleaning activity.

BACHE helps further and higher education bodies and institutions in the UK and Ireland to network and share best practice and cleaning processes thereby achieving the ultimate aim of improving cleaning standards and professionalism across campuses.
