The College's Corporation includes seventeen members or governors. In line with the Instrument and Articles of Government the Corporation's membership includes the Principal, twelve governors, two student governors and two staff governors.



From time to time vacancies arise on the Board and we welcome interest from prospective members.  Expressions of interest can be made to the Clerk at the contact details below.  At present applications are being sought from those with experience in the Further Education sector or a background in quality and standards and inspection in an educational setting.  The College has a strong commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and drawing its Governors from all sections of society. The Corporation is looking for members who can bring a range of skills, experience, perspectives and backgrounds to the College.  Being a College Governor provides a real opportunity to become involved in the College’s strategic direction.  The Corporation is keen to attract well motivated and experienced candidates who have a focus on learners and are able to contribute to the College’s future.  Whilst these vital governance roles do not attract remuneration, all travel and accommodation expenses necessarily incurred will be reimbursed.  There are six full Corporation Meetings a year, plus various committee meetings depending on individual involvement.   

Governors have a critical role in:

• Ensuring the financial wellbeing of the College and monitoring the effective and efficient use of resources and the quality of its services
• Assuring that the College's educational character meets the needs of the community which the College serves
• Ensuring that the College mission and vision both reflects the needs of the community it serves and informs and directs every aspect of the College's activities
• Monitoring the ethos of the College

Further information is available from the Clerk to the Corporation, including:

• Agendas, reports and minutes considered at meetings of the Corporation and its Committees
• The Register of Interests of Members of the Corporation
• The Corporation’s Financial Regulations and Procedures are also held by the Clerk and may be inspected by mutual arrangement
