Help us shape the future for young people and skills in Surrey

Why become a governor?

As a governor, you’ll help ensure Nescot delivers the skills that will help young people and adults in Surrey and the surrounding areas get ahead in their careers, and support businesses to innovate and grow. You’d sit on the Corporation board, and could also join one of the specialist committees, such as finance or audit. You’ll work at a strategic level and use your knowledge, skills and experience to take the college forward. You can find out more about the members of the Corporation here, and read more about the terms of office here.
