Heart of Worcestershire Governor Vacancy

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 Worcester, Redditch, Bromsgrove and Malvern, we are a passionate, thriving organisation with a large and diverse community of students.

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 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, ‘To provide Worcestershire with high quality further and higher education and training’.

We are currently seeking applicants with skills and experience gained at a senior level in the following areas: education and training, business and commerce and the legal profession. 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 black and ethnic minority groups.

The role of a Governor is an exciting and fulfilling opportunity. You should be able to attend Corporation and Committee meetings, which are usually held in the late afternoon or early evening. Governors are volunteers and do not receive payment for their role, but may claim expenses incurred.

If you are interested in making a real contribution to education and training in Worcestershire and would like further details, please contact:
