Governor Vacancies at Bath College

 

Are you interested in being a Governor in the Further Education & Skills sector at a time of important strategic change?

 

About the Job:

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. The College is part of the West of England Institute of Technology consortium and is offering new T Level qualifications from Autumn 2021.

Bath College is seeking enthusiastic and committed Governors on its Corporation Board 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 a background in one of the following:

  • (i) Audit or Risk management expertise
  • (ii) Third sector, local community or sustainability expertise
  • (iii) Equality, Diversity and Inclusion expertise

Whilst you do not need to have had a background in Further Education, you will need to be committed to education and the College’s values. Volunteering as a Governor is a great way to contribute to, and improve the lives of, the local community. Board meetings take place approx. 7 times per year meeting in the early evening. Governors also usually serve as a member of one of the Board’s committees which meet approx. 3 times p.a.

The College is keen to promote diversity on the Board and applicants from all backgrounds and all parts of Bath and North East Somerset are encouraged to apply. This is a voluntary appointment although reasonable travel expenses may be reimbursed.
