Meet the Governors
What is the Corporation?
The Corporation is the governing body of the College and is made up of a diverse group of people from a variety of backgrounds. They bring a range of skills and experience to the College from both their working and personal lives.
It is made up of Independent Governors, two Staff Governors (elected by staff), two Student Governors (elected by the Student Council), a Parent Governor (elected by parents), Associate Governors, a Co-opted Governor and the Principal.
What is their role?
The Governors fulfil a strategic role. They are not there to manage the college, but are there to ensure that the managers do their job in running the College.
As such, Governors, amongst many other things, set, review and monitor the College’s aims, objectives and policies. They are involved in the strategic planning and leadership of a large and complex organisation, which includes financial issues, staff issues, estates issues, teaching and learning issues and general governance issues.
All governors serve in a voluntary and unpaid capacity, although certain expenses can be reimbursed.
