TWO MORE COLLEGE STUDENTS GET ON BOARD

TWO MORE COLLEGE STUDENTS GET ON BOARD

We're pleased to be able to offer our accredited 'Preparing to be a board member' online training to two more students from NPTC Group of Colleges. The course will help them in their roles as Student Governors, providing a thorough overview of what it means to become actively involved in governance, and will empower them to develop a sense of ownership by enabling them to realise their potential in having their voices heard and participate fully in the decision-making process.

It's a big commitment, the training delivered online over Teams in five two-hour sessions over the next few weeks. Upon successful completion of the course and submission of a workbook, they will each gain a recognised Level One qualification and, we hope, the desire to carry their valuable skills as governors beyond college in the future because, as we know, young people are under-represented at a trustee or board level.
