HNC’s Corporation is in essence the College’s Governing Body. The priority of the Corporation is to make sure that we succeed in our vision of opening minds, embracing difference and empowering one another to shape a better future. This is achieved by both supporting and challenging HNC as an organisation. Whilst the Corporation is not responsible for the ‘day to day running’ of HNC, the group has final responsibility for aspects such as:
This of course covers a number of critical responsibilities, therefore the Corporation has a number of Committees that take responsibility for working with senior leaders to enhance everything we do by focussing on key areas for improvement.
The College’s Corporation comprises of representatives from industry and commerce, the Local Authority, the local community, the Principal, members of staff, students and parents of students. Some members are appointed directly by the Corporation and some are elected by the staff and students of the college. All Governors serve in a voluntary capacity.
We welcome the views of students and parents and will post details of the next Annual Stakeholders Meeting shortly.
The Corporation Meets once a term and has developed a Committee Structure of 5 Committees. Each committee has Terms of Reference which are reviewed and agreed annually by the Corporation. Each Committee concentrates on various aspects of the College and these are:
