The audit committee examines risk management, meets with internal and financial auditors and considers issues such as best value. The committee meets generally once a term and invites the principal and deputy principal to attend to answer questions.
Curriculum & Quality Committee
The committee which reviews the quality of the learner experience is now called the Curriculum and Quality Committee, to reflect the increased focus on the curriculum. Its remit is to monitor the quality of our curriculum offer in, for example, student results, but also quality of teaching and learning.
The Committee receives reports about successes and complaints, learner satisfaction, how the College attracts new learners and how the curriculum changes to meet the needs of new stakeholders.
The Resources Committee's terms of reference state that the main remit is to have oversight of the financial management of the College. This entails receiving regular information used to monitor the financial health of the organisation, such as cash flow.
The Committee therefore oversees anything that might affect the income and expenditure of the College, such as staffing and employment, accommodation and I.T. resources.
When it is necessary to replace a governor, it is the task of the Governance Committee to seek suitable candidates, interview them and recommend them as new members of the Board. The Committee also considers matters surrounding how the Board works, from paperwork to legal obligations.
