The Corporation is responsible for the overall functioning of the College. It oversees the college’s strategic direction, financial performance and quality of service provided to learners and the community.

The Corporation Board is made up of highly experienced individuals, who have extensive experience in management across industry, business, law, finance and the community, as well as students and staff. The Board meets to discuss the college’s strategy and its progress on key performance matters.

The Corporation also has a number of committees that provide more detailed scrutiny and support to specific aspects of College’s work.

Governors also play an active role in college life through support and advice, as well as attending events and promoting the good work the college does in the community. All governors are unpaid volunteers who come from a range of backgrounds and are elected for a term at a time.

The governing body is seeking to recruit new governors. If you are interested in finding out more and would like an informal discussion please contact David Round, Director of Governance – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
