Members of the Corporation

Membership of the Corporation

The Corporation at BCA has 14 members, who were recruited under different categories of membership.  The aim of the membership categories was to ensure that the governing body includes people from a range of backgrounds reflecting the community that the college serves.  From January 2008, the four categories of ‘external’ membership (ie business, local authority, co-opted and community) were merged into one to give Corporations more flexibility in appointing suitable members. New appointees from 1 January 2008 were classified simply as External Members.

The Corporation at BCA is made up of members within the following categories of membership:

  • 8 External governors
  • 3 Staff governors
  • 2 Student governors
  • The Principal

The Search Committee

The search committee advises the governing board on the appointment of governors – and on any other matters relating to membership and appointment that the governing board delegates to it.  The committee consists of relevant members of the governing board and also includes an external representative from the local community who can supplement the governors’ knowledge and bring an objective view to the membership.  Governors cannot be appointed by the governing board until the advice of the search committee has been sought – except in the case of the Principal or chief executive and elected governors (staff and student governors).  Each governing board is expected to produce terms of reference and to make rules for the conduct of its search committee, and to publish the search committee’s advice to the governing body.
