Join our Governing Body

MidKent College is a Further and Higher Education College in Kent, serving the community with training and education services from its campuses in Maidstone and Medway.  

Each year approximately 7,500 students aged 16 years and upwards enrol at the College to gain the skills they need to progress in work and life.

 

Strategically, we are committed to:

Education – the delivery of high-quality education and training to our students

Economy – ensuring that the skills and qualifications gained by students meet the needs of local businesses and support economic growth

Community – preparing students to serve as valuable, contributing members of the local community.

This is all possible thanks to the strategic oversight and challenge of our Governing Body – a legal structure responsible for the direction and function of the College, financial health and the quality of service it offers to the community. Our Governing Body comprises individuals with a broad range of backgrounds and experiences who volunteer their time and skills to the benefit of our students and the communities we support.

The Governing Body meets at least five times a year in addition to an annual strategic away-day. There are five committees: Risk and Audit, Finance & General Purposes, Quality, Teaching and Learning, Remuneration and Search and Governance, which meet regularly throughout the year.

With a recent ‘Good’ Ofsted inspection, robust financial health and planning, and the growth of our wholly-owned subsidiary company MKC Training, both the College and our Governing Body are in a strong position.

As Governors commit to a term of office, we anticipate that over the next two years a number of our current Governors will complete their service and stand down. We are currently searching for two additional Governors to join our Board, but anticipate that our search will continue to add new board members throughout 2020.

At this time we're particularly interested in recruiting Governors with extensive professional experience in the following fields:

  • Business
  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • Legal
  • Public Relations.

Further information on the role and function of a Governor is available in the document library below. Applications in the current phase of recruitment close on 22 November at 5pm. The shortlisting and appointment process will start shortly afterwards.

The College is committed to diversity on the Governing Body.
