Governor (Curriculum and Quality remit)

West London College

Non-remunerated / expenses paid

 West London College is a large further and higher education college based across four campuses in the London boroughs of Ealing and Hammersmith and Fulham. We provide training and development for over 10,000 students from entry level to postgraduate and play a major role in improving lives, social mobility and economic success through education and skills development.

Under the auspices of a refreshed board and new senior leadership team, the college has been on a positive recovery journey over the last few years and now has an excellent platform for further success and impact. We have achieved all recent financial targets, developed a progressive new mission, vision and corporate values, and earned awards such as the Mayor’s Construction Academy Scheme kitemark status. We consistently work with our industry partners to ensure we develop the skills that Londoners need to enable them to be productive and prosperous.

We are now seeking a new Governor with a curriculum and quality remit to join our Corporation. This Governor will bring additional, effective support and challenge to ensure that our education and training programmes are delivered in a high-quality way, with continuous improvement and innovative practice.

Ideally, with a background in further education, schools or a transferrable education and skills environment, our successful candidate will have experience of high quality, impactful teaching and learning, along with the ambition and drive to promote excellent practice and embed aspiration. A strategic overview and cross-organisational perspective of quality improvement would be beneficial, while a passion for the transformational power of education is paramount. Prior Governor experience is not required as you will benefit from a well-supported induction and training programme.
