Governor Opportunities

Newham Sixth Form College (NewVIc) is well regarded for promoting opportunity, social mobility and economic prosperity within our communities in East London. Rated ‘good’ by Ofsted in 2018, we are a highly performing education provider, synonymous with diversity, inclusivity and aspiration.

One of the largest sixth form colleges in London with over 2,600 students, NewVIc offers a wide range of courses, including A-levels, specialist pathways, vocational programmes and a growing adult offer. We are one of only a few sixth form colleges around the country taking part in the T level pilots from September, which provides an excellent opportunity to be at the leading edge of technical education.

We are currently seeking several new Governors to join the college Corporation (Governing Body) to help achieve our mission of ‘enhancing lives through excellent education and learning’. The Corporation makes an important contribution to the life of the college and, therefore, to the students by ensuring that the vision and policies are appropriate and that it is well run by our Executive Leadership Team. The focus of its attention should be on strategy and the Corporation acts as a decision making body.

We are keen to attract people from different backgrounds with varied experience and skills. A passion for education and for improving opportunity and social mobility is key, as is the commitment to contribute to the team. Previous Governor experience is not required as you will benefit from a well-supported induction and training programme.

At present the Corporation seeks to appoint, in particular, individuals with skills and experience profiles covering one or more of the following:

    • Finance (particularly qualified accountants)
    • Capital projects
    • Teaching, learning and assessment

Your experience can help us shape the future of our college. In return you will work with a great team of aspirational people and gain insight into a range of strategic aspects, while making a positive impact on communities and the wider economy.
