Governance Recruitment

Recent governance surveys conducted by the AoC indicated that governance recruitment remains a significant challenge for the sector, so we have launched Promoting Diversity in Governance, a campaign to encourage individuals from all walks of life to consider entering the world of governance and highlight the value they can bring to the role.

We believe college boards across the country should be striving to the diversity of membership that reflects their student population and the communities they serve. By promoting diversity in governance, we can ensure that college governance goes from strength to strength and truly represents the communities their college serves.

Thank you so much for the support that AoC provided RHACC to recruit our new Chair. It was invaluable. The process went very smoothly. Your help in putting the questions together and preparing the panel meant that we were focused on ensuring the new Chair had the specific skills our organisation needs to take us through the next four years.
