An award-winning college is looking for new Governors as it works to secure an ever higher quality of education and training for students of all ages and backgrounds in Northamptonshire.

Experienced leaders from fields including business, logistics, law, finance and education are being sought by Northampton College as part of a drive to build on its work in the community and further enhance its reputation both locally and nationally.

Principal of Northampton College, Pat Brennan-Barrett, said: “This is an opportunity to hold a key role in a College that is rated by Ofsted as Good with outstanding features. We are the leading College in the region and we are looking to be seen as one of the very best in the country. We are ambitious and we are looking for Governors who share that vision and determination to deliver success. 

“Our present Governors come from a wide range of backgrounds and there are strong professional working relationships between the Corporation and staff, which is a key element of how we work and our success.  

“As a college we provide a welcoming and inclusive working and learning environment, recognising and respecting all individuals' differences. We are keen to encourage applications from diverse communities, those from under represented groups.”

“We are also looking looking for someone to join our audit committee. This person does not have to be a qualified accountant but they should have some experience in financial or audit-related work.”

Being a governor is a non-executive Trustee role. The Corporation provides strategic input for the College, in both holding staff to account for the overall delivery of the offer to students in a professional manner and at the same time offering support. 

The roles are a stimulating and rewarding opportunity to bring insights from your own field of experience to the strategic direction of a leading Further and Higher Education College – enabling thousands of people to reach their full potential and benefiting employers and the wider community. 

An induction programme and on-going training will be provided to the successful candidates.
