Newham College of Further Education Member of the Corporation Board – Governor

Member of the Corporation Board – Governor

Newham College of Further Education 

Remuneration: Unpaid, voluntary role with reasonable expenses

Time commitment: Circa 1-2 evenings per month, plus 1 day per year for attendance at the annual conference

Term of office: 3 years

This is an exciting time to join Newham College as a Member of our Governing Body and be part of our continued journey to build and sustain the preferred vocational teaching and learning environment for the communities we serve.

The Corporation Board is the non-executive decision-making body of the College.  It is responsible for ensuring the strategy, the finances and risk of the business are monitored through having oversight of corporate governance and compliance. The role of Governor is to be party to approving the College’s strategic plan and ensuring funds are carefully utilised in promoting Further Education. Independently and as part of the Board, candidates must have the legitimate experience to provide constructive challenge and scrutiny to ensure the quality of provision continually improves through the recruitment and appraisal of senior staff members.

The benefits of being part of the Newham College Corporation Board are countless in terms of influence on the education and future of the students and our local community.  We are one of the largest and most successful colleges in London and your influence, support and scrutiny will be unprecedented in ensuring the College maintains its position in the sector.

Candidates will have a proven track record and significant leadership capability and experience in one of the following areas;

  • Finance
  • Audit
  • Estates/capital development
  • Local/Central government
  • Community engagement

Whilst the Board would be pleased to receive applications from candidates with non-executive experience, this is not a prerequisite and as such these opportunities could be the first board role for candidates.

What is important is that candidates have worked strategically within the public or private sector and have an interest in making a difference to the students we educate.
