Thank you for your interest in becoming a Governor at Wirral Met College. With a vision to be outstanding, Wirral Met College has charitable status and is run by a Board of Governors who, as non-executive directors, are responsible for ensuring that the College’s vision, mission and strategic direction are ‘set and met.’ Governors make key decisions that shape the future of FE in Wirral for current and future generations of students, employers, staff and the wider community.

For some of our Governors, this role provides them with a new dimension to their own career development as they enhance their strategic thinking skills in the context of community leadership. Other Governors are already very senior leaders who choose to contribute their time and expertise to help make Wirral a better place to live and learn.

If you feel that you have the qualities and experience required to be a Governor at Wirral Met College and you would like to contribute some of your time and expertise to transform lives in the Wirral community, then we would love to hear from you.

You would need to commit to:

  • Five Board meetings each year, plus any other committees that you are appointed to serve on. Meetings take place in the evening from 6pm. Please note, you will need to read comprehensive documentation to prepare for these meetings.
  • An annual strategic planning and review workshop that runs a full day in October.
  • An annual half day strategic review workshop that runs for half a day in June.
