Chair of the Corporation
A maximum of two terms of four years
Unpaid with reasonable expenses
Approximately four days per month
Our current high-calibre, Corporation has improved significantly over the past three years involving the appointment of 12 new Members. As Chair, you will quickly foster positive relations with governors and executive colleagues and develop your understanding of the strategic direction of our organisation. We have a fantastic diversity of governors on the Corporation, with a wide range of skills and knowledge from various sectors, communities and career backgrounds . The CEO/Principal and Corporation plan to commence strategic planning for the 2020-2025 period soon, and you will play an integral part in this process. Your experience of business planning and stakeholder engagement in large and complex companies will be of great value.
As Chair of a progressive FE college, it’s important that you have an affinity for and understanding of further education, skills and work based training. Whilst it is not essential that the Chair has direct experience of the sector, it’s important that you believe in education and skills standards for all of our students; regardless of their backgrounds, ethnicity or culture, and have a deep belief in the power of social mobility.
We’re proud of the journey we have been on to get where we are. 2018 marks the start of the phase of our improvements. Our focus is on the continued improvement of teaching, learning and delivering the new campus for the students of the future. As Chair, you will help us focus both inwards, on the strategic improvements required, and externally with our current and future stakeholders and partners.
We expect the appointment of Chair to be approved by the Corporation in Spring 2018, and a formal handover to take place throughout the Summer term. It is therefore anticipated that our new Chair commences in post from September 2018.
