Join our Board of Management and Let Learning Flourish

City of Glasgow College is seeking to fill three vacancies on our Board. We are delighted to invite applications from people with a belief in the value of college education and a commitment to widening access, lifelong learning and the student experience.

Who Are We?

We are Scotland’s largest professional and technological education and skills college – and the third largest in the UK. The College traces its roots back to 1850 and our core purpose is to “Let Learning Flourish”. Our commitment to excellence, innovation and inspiration is recognised in Scotland, across the UK and throughout the world.

Our multi-award-winning, state-of-the-art, twin-site campus in the heart of Glasgow offers outstanding resources and opportunities for students to gain essential skills and nationally and internationally recognised qualifications – from entry-level to degree-level study, as well as chartered professional qualifications. We've prepared over 100,000 graduates for the world of work.

Our Board

Our Board, as the College’s governing body, is responsible for setting our strategic direction, ensuring its effective management and delivering high-quality learning and outcomes. Board members serve on a voluntary basis, with reasonable expenses reimbursed, and spend approximately 10 working days throughout the year to fulfil the core duties and responsibilities of their roles. Meetings are hybrid, take place in the late afternoon/early evening and last approximately two hours.

Make A Difference and Let Learning Flourish

Whether you have served on a Board before or this is the first time you have considered it, this is a fantastic opportunity to contribute your skills and experience and share your ideas to shape the future of the College. Together as a Board, you will play a pivotal role in guiding our strategies and upholding good governance – ensuring we remain an inspirational place of learning, an excellent place to work, and an innovative and valued partner with industry.

We Value Diversity

The College is committed to ensuring it represents the diversity of the city and region the College serves. We, therefore, encourage applications from groups currently under-represented on the boards of Scotland’s public bodies, including women, disabled people, those of different cultural and social backgrounds and people under the age of 50.
