Hereford College of Arts is a vibrant arts college with a specialist focus on art, media, design, popular music and performing arts. The curriculum includes undergraduate and postgraduate degrees alongside a range of further education programmes and a wide-ranging short course programme. Our mission is to empower creativity and enrich our world through transformative arts education and our board plays a vital role in our dynamic community of students, staff, fellows, partners and alumni. We are proud of our reputation and track record but have ambitious plans to develop and grow our distinctiveness, and the corporation recently committed to a new five year strategy. Hereford city and the wider region are also full of ambition with new cultural initiatives and enterprises, and an innovative engineering university in development, which offer many opportunities for collaboration.
We have a strong and active board but with some governors reaching the ends of their terms of service in the near future we are seeking to recruit new members. We are particularly interested in people with a proven track in further or higher education or with significant business experience.

You’ll need to be committed to education, the arts and the college’s ethos: to collaborate with partners and promote Hereford College of Arts in the community and wider afield, both regionally and nationally.

There are six Board meetings and at least three Committee meetings annually (most but not all of the main board members are also committee members).

This is a voluntary appointment; reasonable travel, subsistence and out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

For more information, please e-mail Linda Watkins, Clerk to the Governors or telephone 01432 379351.

The College is an Equal Opportunities employer and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people. All posts are subject to DBS checks.
