The Vale of Glamorgan Council

 

Cabinet: 3rd September 2012

 

Report of the Leader

 

Representation on Cardiff and Vale College Board of Governors

 

Purpose of the Report

1.             To appoint a Council representative to the Board of Governors of Cardiff and Vale College.

Recommendations

That Cabinet appoint a Member to fill the existing vacancy on the Board of Governors.

 

Reasons for the Recommendations

To ensure continuity of Council representation.

 

Background

2.             Following the amalgamation of Barry College and Coleg Glan Hafren, Cabinet on 18th May, 2011 noted the use of the former Chief Executive's Emergency Powers to approve former Councillor Hampton's nomination to the new Board.  Cabinet endorsed the appointment, thereby allowing the Council to participate fully in Board related meetings from the outset of the new organisation.

Relevant Issues and Options

3.             The Council has recently been approached by the College regarding its representation on the Board.  The College has suggested that the Cabinet Member for Children's Services be nominated by the Council.  With regard to former Councillor Hampton, the nature of his appointment means that he will remain as Governor in a personal capacity but, clearly, cannot be regarded as the Council's representative.
