On behalf of all the governors I would like to welcome you to the governance section of the Herefordshire College of Technology website. Here you can access information on the Corporation and its Committees, governance policies and procedures, minutes of meetings and details of how to become a governor.
Herefordshire is a sparsely populated area with a population of 177,000. Herefordshire College of Technology delivers 87 full time courses and 300 part time courses, covering a broad curriculum in 14 areas of learning. Currently, the College has 1,500 full time students and 6,000 part time students, including 450 Higher Education students.
The Corporation (governing body) is responsible for the mission and strategic direction of the College, determines policy and monitors the performance of the College. It oversees the management of the organisation within the parameters set by the Instrument and Articles of Government. Further Education Corporations have between 12 and 20 Members, who can be from a variety of backgrounds; their experience and strategic skills make a vital contribution to the continuing development of Colleges. Membership details and governor profiles can be found using the link to The Board and its Committees. If you feel that you could contribute to the work of the College, either by being a governor or as a member of one of our Consultative Committees, please see the section on How to become a Governor for HCT.
