The Board wishes to announce that following a final decision made by the individual corporation meetings on June 7th 2017 and June 9th 2017 respectively, Bedford College and Tresham College of Further and Higher Education (Tresham), have agreed to merge. It is planned that Tresham will dissolve on 31st July 2017 and its assets, rights and liabilities will be transferred to Bedford College.
The decision was made after independent due diligence reports and responses from the consultation period were considered and approved. The colleges are expected to finalise the legal merger arrangements over the next few weeks to become a merged entity with effect from 1st August 2017.
Our Governors make a valuable contribution to the development of our college and our links with the community we serve.
Technically termed as a ‘Corporation’ our Board of Governors is responsible for the educational character, mission and solvency of our college, and for the setting and monitoring of educational standards and targets.
We are always keen to hear from people who are interested in joining the Governing Body and welcome people of all ages and backgrounds. Experience of the Further Education sector is not a requirement.
All Governors offer their time voluntarily and are expected to attend not only the formal Governing Body and relevant Committee meetings but also training events and less formal occasions such as exhibitions and performances.
