The Advisory Body has up to 24 members who include senior, middle and up and coming managers from across local private, public and voluntary sectors. Members sit on one of three committees:
Resources and Business Engagement Committee:
This group monitors the college’s support services such as estates and finance.
Learners, Curriculum and Skills Committee:
This group monitors the college’s learner offer such as what courses are on offer.
Audit and Risk Management Committee:
This group monitors the college’s risk register and receives reports from internal and external auditors.
When do the committees meet?
Each committee meets three times a year, normally on a Thursday evening from 4pm and meetings usually last a couple of hours. The group reports directly to the Board of Directors and each committee is led by at least two board members and is attended by relevant senior managers.
The college organises at least one training event for members every year
The role offers professional development at a senior level
When vacancies arise on the College Board, priority is given to those already on the Advisory Board
“It has given me the chance to give something back”.
“It has helped boost my CV”.
“It has given me the opportunity to see governance in action”.
“As a former student of the college I can repay the help it gave me”.
Members are appointed for an initial period of four years (apart from parent governors whose term is two years).
The college hopes to meet perspective new members in the first week of November 2019 before applications are approved by the Board on December 3rd.
This is followed by a college induction and committee allocations to try and balance individual skills, experience and interests to the appropriate committee.
The college is also keen to hear from those with a connection to the college, such as former students, parents and employers.
