On behalf of the Board of Craven College, I would like to thank you for your interest in our vacancy for a Governor to take up the role of Chair of the Governing Board. We are keen to recruit an experienced and skilled Board member to take over the reins from our current Chair, who will have completed two terms of office as a Governor later this year.
Craven College is an aspirational general further education college based in Skipton with additional learning centres at Leeds Bradford International Airport, Ripon and Scarborough, serving over 6000 learners.
We believe Craven College is a great place to work and study and are proud that our most recent Ofsted inspection rated the College as Good and Apprenticeship provision Outstanding. The College maintains a healthy financial position, notwithstanding a difficult funding environment. We are passionately committed to engaging with our stakeholders to ensure that we deliver courses that meet the needs of our students as well as providing employers and employees with the skills needed to succeed in business.
I hope this site gives you a good overview of this challenging but rewarding opportunity for an exceptional individual to make a tangible difference to the College.
If you have the vision, expertise and appetite to lead us and contribute to our ongoing and future success, we look forward to receiving an application from you.
Fiona Thomson, Chair, Search and Governance Committee
