College Governors

Welcome from Chair of Governors

I am privileged to be the Chair of Governors for this inspiring, innovative and exciting College provision for young adults with a learning disability and complex needs. Horizons College provides our learners with continuing educational, leisure and work/volunteering opportunities and our learners provide us with the inspiration to strive to continually evaluate, improve and develop so that we meet their needs as well as their aspirations.

The aim of the Local Governing Committee is to work with the staff in helping College learners achieve their full potential in a happy, caring and safe environment.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for more information, with praise, concerns or with any worries.

Kind regards,
Alec Hunt
Chair of Governors

College Governors

Governors are responsible for ensuring that the National Curriculum is taught in accordance with current legislation. They are responsible for the recruitment of staff, for use of the building and for prudent financial management of Horizons College. To discharge these duties they are assisted by Governor Support and staff at the Local Authority (LA).

College Governance

The English College system is amongst the best in the world and has a central role in supporting the attainment of young people and adults, preparation for employment and further study and continued skills development.  It supports the aspirations of its learners, both for their own sake and to serve the needs of society.  It also plays a role in shaping democratic, sustainable and inclusive communities.  These well-defined purposes create the need for governance structures and practices which involve engaging with governors, staff, learners, parents / carers, other education partners and the business community.
