Are you interested in being a Governor in the Further Education & Skills sector at a
time of important strategic change?
This is an exciting time in the Further Education sector with the Government’s commitment to invest in long-term change that will transform the post-16 education landscape. Bath College is seeking enthusiastic and committed Governors to further enhance the skills of its Governing Body.
The College plays a vital role in the local community, working and collaborating with a wide range of partners in the Bath and North East Somerset and West of England Combined Authority area. Its mission is to provide innovative training, develop skills, inspire individuals, enrich the wider community, and encourage all to achieve and progress. The College provides a wide variety of education and training for people of all ages from 16 years upwards, offering further and higher education, apprenticeships and adult community education.
Who are we looking for?
The Corporation is seeking two new governors, ideally with one of the following areas of expertise:
- Audit or Risk management
- Third sector, local community or sustainability
- Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The role of a governor is interesting, varied and rewarding. Whilst you do not need to have a background in Further Education, you will need to be committed to education, the college’s values and paying a part in the college’s strategic direction. Volunteering as a governor is a great way to contribute to, and improve the lives of, the local community. Board meetings take place in the early evening approx. 7 times per year. Governors also usually serve as a member of one of the Board’s committees.
The College is keen to promote diversity on the Board and applicants from all backgrounds and from all sections of the communities it serves are welcome to apply. This is a voluntary appointment although reasonable travel expenses may be reimbursed
If you are wondering if this is the right opportunity for you and would like to know more, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Anne Roberts, Head of Governance ([email protected]) for an informal and confidential conversation.
