Joining the LGB

We are always keen to hear from individuals who may be interested in serving on the LGB. There are many reasons why this voluntary role might appeal. Your motivation might be to make a positive professional development step by enhancing your leadership skills, or you may have significant levels of expertise that the Board can benefit from.

An inclusive LGB composed of Governors who bring a diverse range of skills, experiences, qualifications, characteristics and perspectives will have a positive impact on setting the strategic direction of the College. The LGB therefore actively encourage volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures and perspectives in order to reflect the communities it serves.
