Management Team

The FE Corporation and Senior Management

The Board of the College (the “Governing Body”) holds responsibility for the strategic direction of the College, its solvency and the safeguarding of its assets. The Board also reviews the performance of the College senior postholders.

The full Corporation normally meets four times each year in addition to holding two Board Development Days. Much of the work of the Corporation is carried out through its sub committees for Policy & Resources; Curriculum & Quality; Audit & Risk; Search & Governance and Remuneration.

 Minutes of the College Corporation meetings are available here.
