Governance at Croydon College
Croydon College’s Governing Body determines the educational mission of the College, its strategic direction, oversees its financial performance and safeguards its assets. It does this through a committee structure in which it meets with the College’s senior management to determine and monitor the College’s performance and planning. You can view all the Governance documents by clicking here.
Our Governors are volunteers and often have significant professional, business or community experience, which is called on to inform the Governing Body’s collective decision-making. Staff and students elect their own Governors. The day-to-day governance of the College is managed by the Clerk to the Governors, whose autonomy from the management structure of the rest of the College assures their independence.
Under the terms of the Further & Higher Education Act 1992, the most senior body in a Further Education college is its Governing Body.
The information below will offer more information about the College’s Governors, its governance structure and obligations, and how to apply to become a Governor.
