Heart of Worcestershire College delivers a wide range of vocational, professional and technical qualifications, helping to give local and national employers the workforce they need and our students the jobs they want.
Located across four campuses in Bromsgrove, Malvern, Redditch and Worcester we are a passionate, thriving organisation with a large and diverse community of students and have just been rated “Good” by Ofsted.
The College Corporation is responsible for providing strategic leadership, for the quality of services to students and for the effective use of public funds. We are seeking applications from dynamic and motivated individuals, who would like to be involved in shaping the future of education provision at the College, to become Governors and to support the College in its vision: “Inspire, Innovate, Advance”.
The role of a Governor is an exciting and fulfilling one. You should be able to attend Corporation and Committee meetings, in person or through telephone or video conferencing. Meetings are usually held in the late afternoon or early evening in Redditch or Worcester. Governors are volunteers and do not receive payment for their role, but may claim expenses incurred.
Please note that these roles are subject to an enhanced DBS check. We aim to reflect the community we serve and would particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups including women, people with a disability, and members of minority groups.
