Governors make a valuable contribution to the success of the College. Their role is to determine the direction and strategy of the College, to be accountable for the proper use of the public funds entrusted to it and to oversee the quality of all it does. Governors are appointed to one of a number of categories: external members who have the necessary skills to ensure the Corporation carries out the functions under article 3 of the Articles of Government, staff and student members. The Principal / CEO is also a governor. The governing body does not manage the College or organise its day-to-day affairs, which is the job of the Principal / CEO, who is appointed by the governing body.
