The Board

The Board of Governors at Leeds City College was established during the merger process in 2008/2009.

Our Board is responsible for – amongst many other things – determining the mission and strategic direction of the College, policies, procedures, and overseeing the management of the College which is in the hands of the Principal.

All of our Governors are very proud of the position they hold and take their responsibilities seriously. The Board includes members from a variety of backgrounds and their experience and strategic skills make a vital contribution to the continuing development of the organisation.

Our Board of Governors are working hard with staff and students to make Leeds City College a beacon of excellence for the future.
