Quick Reference

The governing body of a further education college, which came into use following incorporation in 1993. The composition of the board was changed by the Further and Higher Education Act 1992, which removed local authority representation and increased the proportion of representation by local commercial and industrial interests. Members of the board are not required to have a detailed knowledge of the minutiae of the college's provision, but are expected to monitor and take responsibility for the quality of that provision, its funding and finances, and its responsiveness to local and wider community needs. A board will normally operate a number of specialist subcommittees with responsibility for reporting back to the full committee on matters of finance, equal opportunities, and quality assurance, for example. The minimum number of members for a board is twelve and the maximum is twenty, with specified categories of membership within these figures. See also college of further education.
