The Role of the College Board

The Board is responsible for the overall functioning and strategic direction of the college. It is responsible for ensuring the effective management of the College and for planning its future development. It’s responsibility also extends to monitoring
performance against the targets set in the College's strategic plan, and in Glasgow Region's Outcome Agreement with the Scottish Funding Council.

A standard of corporate governance is demanded at the highest level as the College is accountable for the use of public funds. Glasgow Clyde is also a registered charity and for both reasons its actions and accountability are entirely transparent to the public who must have trust in its operations and governance. These areas are a responsibility for the Board of Management.

In addition, the Board has a representational and promotional role; it should reflect the College’s core values and promote its commitment to equality and inclusion. The Board is ultimately the strategic leadership of the College supporting the Principal and Senior Leadership Team. It seeks to ensure that the College is working to achieve excellence in student experience.


Public Service Role 

Membership of the Board is a public service role and you will be expected to uphold the highest ethical standards of integrity and probity and adhere to the nine principles of public life set out by the Committee on Standards in Public Life. At all times a Board member will act in good faith and in the best interest of students and of the College.
