Wirral Met College – the place to be – Do you want to join us on our journey?
Wirral Metropolitan College is a large College of Further Education, supporting over 16,000 students every year, studying a range of courses from basic skills to higher education, with a particular emphasis on the development of vocational skills. In addition to developing opportunities for individuals, the College provides workforce development for hundreds of local employers and this includes a number of Learning Centres and Projects that have been developed in partnership with local employers.
Would you like to play a key role in helping your local College to serve its Community?
The College is seeking highly motivated and dynamic individuals to join the Board of Governors to help shape the College’s educational character and mission, and to take it forward on its journey to ‘Outstanding’. Members of the Board are drawn from a variety of backgrounds and their experience and strategic skills make a vital contribution to the continuing development of the organisation.
At present, there are two vacancies on the Board and applications from local employers and members of ethnic minorities would be particularly welcome. Candidates with business, accountancy and human resources experience are especially desirable as the College looks to increase its income from the private sector.
We are looking for committed individuals who can demonstrate excellent strategic skills, have plenty of ideas and a highly innovative approach. Being a governor is a challenging but rewarding voluntary role right at the forefront of developments in further education, at a time of huge change and challenge within the sector.
If you feel you can contribute to our continuing success, we would be pleased to hear from you. The College is committed to equal opportunities and it is a key objective that membership of the Board should reflect this policy. Governors of the College are required to undergo a Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check.
