The Corporation is comparable to a board of non-executive directors. It is composed of members from the local community, stakeholders, student and staff members. Working closely with the Principal, the Corporation is responsible for approving the College’s mission statement, establishing college strategy and maintaining the overall framework of policies and procedures within which the college operates. Governors help the college to maintain a long term focus whilst working on its shorter term goals and plans. The day-to-day management of the college is very much the responsibility of Principal John Callaghan and the Executive Management Team.
The Corporation is advised by a Clerk who is independent of the College Management team and has access to independent professional advice. Governors making up the Solihull College Corporation bring with them a wealth of business, academic and community experience. This ensures that strategic decisions impacting on the College are made in a professional, progressive and responsible way.
