Our aim is to introduce the role of Governors and how we support the learners and staff of Nottingham College (formerly Central and ncn). 

The members who serve on the Governing Body are unremunerated, so we are very appreciative of the time and personal commitment on a voluntary basis. Members do find their time on the Corporation a rewarding one, both in terms of contributing to the local community and making a difference to the College and its learners.
