To maintain momentum, while improving the opportunities we provide to thousands of learners under our brands South Tyneside College, Tyne Metropolitan College, South Shields Marine School and Queen Alexandra Sixth Form, we are seeking people with dedication, commitment and experience to drive our future by serving as governors.

This is a voluntary role. We are looking for applicants with senior management or board level experience.  In particular, skills or experience within one or more of the following areas:

  • Education / Quality

  • Human Resources
  • Financial Management / Audit

You may like to speak to us informally to find out more about the role and responsibilities of being a governor, or you may simply require further information about our Board. In either instance, please contact Neil Longstaff, Director of Governance, on 0191 4273903.
