Join our Board of Management and make a difference
The Board of Management of City of Glasgow College is currently seeking to fill two vacancies, and we would welcome applications from people with a deep commitment to college learning, particularly from groups currently under-represented on Scotland’s public bodies, such as women, disabled people, diverse ethnic backgrounds, and those under 50. While applicants with backgrounds in further and higher education, industry, finance, law, commercial development and other professions are valued, we also welcome those with experience in other sectors.
City of Glasgow College, one of Europe’s largest colleges, is a leading provider of technological and professional education in many specialist areas, serving Glasgow and beyond, with a national and international reputation for excellence in college education. The Board of Management is responsible for the governance of the College.
This is an exciting period for the College, as we continue to redefine and shape a new era of College education in a time of recovery, supporting the regional and national economy by enabling our students to excel and to realise their full potential through innovative approaches to learning and teaching. The College also has a strong international profile and a vibrant, diverse culture, with students from around 130 different countries enrolling each year.
Board members serve on a voluntary basis, with reasonable travel expenses paid. There are around 6 full Board meetings a year, as well as a number of Board Committee meetings. Under normal circumstances meetings would usually be held at 5pm in the City Campus, although remote working at other times is currently supported.
These appointments are overseen by the Glasgow Colleges’ Regional Board (GCRB). Further information about GCRB and other opportunities in the region can be found on its website: www.gcrb.ac.uk Applications will be received until Midday on Friday 22 April 2021.
