The Corporation & its Governance Structure

The New City College Corporation is made up of 12 independent members from the local and business communities, along with two staff and two student members from the College and the Group Principal & Chief Executive. The Corporation is also often referred to or described as the Board.

  • Audit Committee
  • Curriculum, Quality & Students Committee
  • Finance & General Purposes Committee
  • Havering Local Board

Each Committee has Terms of Reference setting out its remit, all of which are aligned with the responsibilities set out by the Instrument & Articles of Government. Committee business is structured on that basis.
