Cambridge Regional College seeks new governors from business sector

Cambridge Regional College is looking to the business community to help fill two vacancies on its governing board.

Vernice Key, Chair of the Governors, said the college was keen to recruit volunteers from the business sector who could bring valuable experience to the college, a leading provider of vocational, technical and professional training.

“We are looking for new governors who care about education and training for young people, adults and professionals – areas that Cambridge Regional College excels in. It’s unpaid but it’s a highly fulfilling role which plays an important part in the college’s development,” she said.

“CRC is one of the largest and most successful colleges in the region, with 4,000 full-time and 5,500 apprentices currently in training. The governing board at CRC helps shape the careers of thousands of young people and adults, bringing far-reaching and lasting benefits to the region’s economy.”

The college is hoping to attract volunteers with business, professional, or community experience – particularly those who can provide finance and audit support.

“Governors work with the college’s senior management team as financial custodians, and with an annual budget of around £40 million, we would welcome governors with experience in the areas of finance and audit,” said Vernice.

The college’s Board of Governors – the Corporation – meets about eight times a year. For more information or to express an interest in the role, contact Emily Baldwin, Clerk to the Corporation, on 01223 418213 or email
