Governance Hub

The Governance Hub provides members of boards in the college sector, and their staff, with access to the key training courses and supporting resources that they need to fulfil their roles. It allows board members to access national training modules on-line and, when they have attended national training events, to be able to remind themselves of the information and advice they received.

It provides board members the opportunity to hear directly from key stakeholder such as Scottish Government and Scottish Funding Council, and to ask questions and participate in a discussion on key governance issues. It is also a great opportunity to network with board members from other colleges.
