Joining the Corporation
Do you want to join us?
We want to hear from people who may be interested in becoming a Corporation Member.
We want our Members to have a wide range of skills, backgrounds and experience. This is to make sure we have the benefit of views from and are truly representative of, our community.
All our Members are appointed as individuals, including those Members who are elected by the staff or student body. Members are not representatives of the organisations or communities from which they come. Once appointed, Members are required to put the interests of the College first.
If you are interested in becoming a Member you should ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I have the commitment?
- Do I have an interest in education?
- Do I have a balanced judgement?
- Do I have a specific skill, professional qualification and/or experience?
- Do I have the ability to assess complex issues?
- Do I have links with the local community or business that I can use for mutual benefit?
- Can I commit to attending a number of meetings during the year?
- Can I put in time before meetings to read the papers?
If you would like to know more about the benefits of becoming a member of the Corporation the Education and Training Foundation has commissioned a short film explaining the benefits of volunteering for these roles and why people should consider putting themselves forward. The film is hosted on the Inspiring FE Governance website, the ETF-funded recruitment service for board members.
