The Corporation is responsible for the overall functioning of the College. It is accountable for the quality of the service to its students and their welfare, the financial health of the College and the proper use of public funds and sound management.
This means that the governing body is accountable for the College’s financial position and use of public funds, the quality of the education it provides and its wider contribution to the community it serves.
City College Plymouth currently has 12 general governors who come from a wide variety of backgrounds including the public, business and community sectors. The four remaining governors come from the College itself ensuring that both staff and students have a voice. Their combined experience, expertise and knowledge enable the Board of the Corporation to respond to the College needs and that of the local community and businesses. Governors are unpaid and act in a voluntary capacity.
The Corporation recently reverted to a Carver style committee structure whereby only the statutory Search and Audit Committees exist. Everything else is discussed at meetings of the Corporation which meets approximately every month. A Finance Scrutiny Group also exists which meets on an ad hoc basis.
Members of the public, including representatives of the press or media, will not be admitted to meetings of the Corporation Board or its committees. In exceptional circumstances, the Corporation or committee may decide to allow public attendance for all or part of a particular meeting.
Note: Members of the public are defined as anyone who is not a member of the Board, Clerk to the Corporation or any member of staff, student or officer invited by the Chair to attend for a specific purpose.
