City of Wolverhampton College is keen to hear from local people interested in becoming a member of its Board of Governors.

As a Governor you will play an important role in helping to ensure, at this crucial time, that the College continues to fulfil its mission “To equip people in Wolverhampton and beyond with the skills to succeed and excel”.

The College attracts over 7,000 students each year. With an annual turnover of approximately £26m it is one of the largest employers in the area and plays an important part in the local economy.
