Board of Directors

The College’s vision of ‘social justice and inclusion’ depends upon effective Board leadership which collectively ensures the delivery of its purpose, the setting of its strategic direction and the upholding of its values.

Under the Articles of Association and the Instrument of Government, the Board has specific responsibility, among other things, for the determination of the educational character and mission of the College; oversight of its activities, financial solvency, compliance with the law, approval of budgets, and acting as the steward of the College’s long-term health and sustainability.  

The Board approves the College’s mission, vision and values and strategy, and is responsible, with the wider College community and the executive, for ensuring that those objectives are effectively delivered.  It agrees Key Performance Indicators against which it can monitor the College’s performance against target.  

The Board currently meets on a monthly basis: a formal Board Calendar of Meetings for the Board and its committees is drawn up annually.
