College Governors

Governors make an invaluable contribution to the development of excellence in colleges. As a member of the Board of the Corporation, Governors set the mission and strategic direction of the college, and scrutinise its performance. Governors are volunteers. Becoming a Governor provides many opportunities to contribute to your local community and is an excellent way of developing strategic leadership skills.
