It is a statutory requirement that colleges, like schools, have a governing body called a corporation.
The College’s Corporation is known as East Kent College Governing Body. The Governing Body has an agreed Statement of Principles which can be viewed here.
Its sixteen members consist of volunteers who are drawn from the community, plus staff and students of the College. The Governors offer experience from sectors such as business, local government, education and the public service sector. Independent members are appointed by the Governing Body and Staff and Student Governors are elected by the staff and the students of the College.
