Becoming a Member of the Board
The Board of Corporation (or Governing Body as it is sometimes known) is responsible for the mission and strategic direction of the College, determining policy, and for monitoring the performance of the College. The Board does not manage the College or organise its day-to-day affairs, as this is the responsibility of the Principal, who is appointed by the Board.
The Board consists of 10 Members, including the Principal, who come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Their experience and strategic skills make a vital contribution to the continuing development of the College.
Board Members are people from the College's community who wish to make a positive contribution to the education of learners of all ages. Board Members are volunteers who have an important part to play in raising standards by setting the strategic direction of the College, ensuring accountability to the public, and monitoring and evaluating the College's performance.
The position of Board Member requires a minimum time commitment of 50 hours per year in order to prepare for and attend meetings, events and training. The position is unpaid but can be very rewarding. From time to time vacancies will arise on the Board.
