Board of Governors

The Governing Body of South Sefton College is responsible for the strategic direction of the College, its mission, and the effective and efficient use of resources. The Board operates and is administered under an Instrument of Governance from Sefton Local Authority.


Our Board of Governors is made up of representatives from a variety of backgrounds and sectors. They are very experienced and qualified to lead and direct the development of the College.

In addition to the Board of Governors, the College also operates a number of sub-committees with specific responsibility for key areas of the College’s activities, which are listed below.

• Curriculum, Quality, Standards and Student Support Committee

• Finance, Premises and Health and Safety Committee

• Personnel Committee


Becoming a Governor

We are always pleased to hear from individuals whose experience, skills and commitment can help the College to develop its mission.

The Governors wish the membership of the Board to encompass a wide spectrum of ages and cultural backgrounds. You may have a background in legal or financial services, community services, education, social work, charities, be an entrepreneur, have experience gained in SMEs or in very large organisations. The wider your vocational field and cultural experience, the better!

The Board of Governors normally meets at least four times a year in addition to sub-committee meetings.  Governors are expected to serve on at least one Committee, which usually meet a minimum of three times per year. Most meetings take place at 3.30pm on a Thursday.
