Hartpury University and College on lookout for new governors

Hartpury University and Hartpury College are inviting applications to join their boards of governors to support Hartpury in continuing its journey as an outstanding specialist education provider.

The boards set the vision, values and strategic direction, and hold the chief executive officer to account for the leadership of Hartpury.

Becoming a governor is an opportunity to positively impact the lives of thousands of learners and staff, as well as the communities and industries Hartpury serves.

With a strong focus on equality, diversity and inclusion, both institutions seek governors from a wide range of backgrounds to benefit from the heritage and life experiences of individuals from the local community and further afield.

Opportunities are available on the boards of both Hartpury University and Hartpury College - two specialist organisations that work side-by-side on one campus - with a shared mission and values, as well as a reputation for excellence in agriculture, animal, sport, equine and veterinary nursing.

The role of governor is highly respected and personally rewarding. Leadership and working together as a team provide governors with an opportunity to make a difference, as well as boosting their individual career development. The board is supportive yet questioning, with independent-minded individuals working as a team in the interest of learners and their communities.

While the positions are voluntary and unpaid, governors are reimbursed for any expenses they may incur as they carry out their work. No previous governor experience is necessary, as individual applications will be considered on their individual merits and skillset.

Edward Keene, chair of governors at Hartpury, said: "We're very excited about this governor recruitment campaign and look forward to welcoming new governors from all walks of life to shape the future of our unique institution.

"If you want to make a positive difference, are passionate about education and transforming lives, and want to become involved in the wider interests of Hartpury University and Hartpury College, we'd like to hear from you."

Hartpury is holding a potential governor open evening on Tuesday May 2 at 6pm at Hartpury. To register your interest, contact Gillian Steels on 01452 702159 or email gillian.steels@hartpury.ac.uk by April 24.
