Instrument & Articles of Government

The instrument of government provides for the constitution of the governing body of each college and the articles for the functions and responsibilities of the governing body.

The Standing Orders supplement the Instrument and Articles of Government and set out the procedures and processes within which the governing body and its committees operate.

The Code of Conduct is intended as a guide, to indicate the standards of conduct and accountability which are expected of governors, to enable them to understand their legal and ethical duties and to assist them both in carrying out those duties and in their relationship with the Board of Governors and the Principal as the Chief Executive.
