Why become a governor?

Be a part of the future of education

If you have a passion for education and training then we’d welcome your application to join the team at a forward-thinking, innovative college group.

Education Partnership North East is a large group of successful colleges with a quality reputation based on results.

There’s never been a better time to be part of our Board of Governors.  With over £50m invested in career-focused facilities, the launch of Vision Northumberland, the group continues to be at the edge of new and exciting developments.  Forging and strengthening links with employers across the region is key to the college’s ongoing success and the Board of Governors play a pivotal role in networking and opening doors to new opportunities.

The work of a Governor is enjoyable, challenging and rewarding. Governors are volunteers, coming from a variety of cultural and industry backgrounds including education, business, law, local government and the not for profit sector.
