Glasgow Kelvin College’s ethos derives from its commitment to excellence, progression and enterprise. It seeks to provide learning opportunities of the highest quality, which engage learners from the widest range of backgrounds, and support their progression to employment or to further study. It seeks to develop enterprise in individuals – as a core skill for learning, life and work; and to support enterprise in both organisations and communities – by developing the capacity of both employers/employees and of community representatives.

The members of our Board and Committees make an important contribution to Glasgow Kelvin College. They bring experience, knowledge and commitment, enabling them to contribute to the College’s strategic direction, governance and continued development. Positions on the Board are currently voluntary and unpaid, but bring huge rewards to members. Your input can make a real difference to the education and prospects of our learners and their wellbeing as well as contributing to the success of the communities of Glasgow, in particular, as we look to recover and develop from the impact of Covid-19.

The Board is currently seeking to recruit three new members of the Board of Management. The Board seeks to give equal opportunities to all who wish to contribute to the College’s success and who have a particular interest in developing Further and Higher Education and improving outcomes for learners. We especially welcome applications from women, people from ethnic minority backgrounds and from people with disabilities as these groups are currently under-represented on our Board of Management.  

As a member you will be interested in the North and East communities of Glasgow, education, particularly further and higher education in a college context and we would welcome applications from people with Finance experience. There is an estimated time commitment of approximately 12 hours per month which includes the reading of papers.  The position is unpaid, however, relevant expenses will be reimbursed.
