The Board of Governors is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the College, approving its annual estimates of income and expenditure, setting its quality strategy, reviewing its educational mission and character, ensuring the effective and efficient use of resources, safeguarding its assets and ensuring its continuing solvency.
