Governance

Our Governance section provides more information on the role of governors and the day to day running of the Corporation.

FE Colleges

Legally, FE colleges are incorporated through the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 and recognised as part of the FE sector. The powers of FE Corporations are set out in the Further and Higher Education Act 1992. The principal powers are that a further education corporation may:

  • Provide further and higher education
  • Provide secondary education to those aged fourteen years and above
  • Participate in the provision of secondary education at a school; and
  • Supply goods or services in connection with their provision of education.

Governance is the way in which an organisation is directed and controlled. A corporation determines the rules and procedures for making decisions on corporate affairs including the process through which strategic objectives are set and performance monitored; and it is responsible for the quality of the service which is provided to students and stake holders as well as ensuring the effective use of resources.

Our Corporation

The Harrow College Corporation (The Board) is made up of 10 independent members from the local and business communities, along with two staff and two student members from the College and the Principal & Chief Executive.
