Welcome to the Governance section of the web site.

Myerscough College's Principal and Chief Executive is Ann Turner.

Myerscough College Further Education Corporation is committed to its stewardship of the College and upholds strongly its legal responsibilities and furthering Myerscough as a leader in land based education in the United Kingdom. All of the Governors who serve on the Corporation are committed to Myerscough and acting in the best interests of the College.

The Corporation is a legal body constituted under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 and consists of 20 members from all walks of life and a cross section of the community which it serves, including staff and two students from College. In business terms it equates to a board of directors in a company.

Under the current Articles of Government the Corporation is responsible for:

  • the determination and periodic review of the educational character and mission of the institution and for the oversight of its activities;
  • approving the quality strategy of the institution;
  • the effective and efficient use of resources, the solvency of the institution and the Corporation and for safeguarding their assets;
  • approving annual estimates of income and expenditure;
  • the appointment, grading, suspension, dismissal and determination of the pay and conditions of service of the holders of senior posts and the Clerk, including, where the Clerk is, or is to be appointed as, a member of staff, the Clerk’s appointment, grading, suspension, dismissal and determination of pay in the capacity as a member of staff; and
  • setting a framework for the pay and conditions of service of all other staff.
