The strategic direction of the college is set and monitored by a Corporation, (similar to a school’s Board of Governors).
Most of the college’s courses are funded by the Education Funding Agency (EFA) and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA), the bodies responsible for all post-16 education apart from higher education. However, we also have a large number of students studying higher education courses and provide training for local businesses.
