East Sussex College Group (ESCG) are keen to appoint motivated and dynamic volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds and with a diversity of skills and experience.                   

ESCG, which formed in 2018 following a merger between Sussex Coast College Hastings and Sussex Downs College, is the leading destination for Further Education in East Sussex.  The college spans four campuses and offers a variety of traditional sixth form subjects, alongside vocational and professional courses, apprenticeships and much, much more!  We pride ourselves in being welcoming and inclusive, with a strong sense of community and a commitment to improving outcomes for all who study with us.

The Governing Body, together with the Principal & Chief Executive Officer, constitutes the highest level of decision-making in the College Group, having overall responsibility for the strategic direction and financial health of the institution.  As a Governor you will be at the very heart of the College Group, not only responsible for determining the education and training provided and the strategy for delivering it, but also leading the drive to maintain excellent teaching and learning, improving outcomes for young people and adult learners in Hastings, Eastbourne, Lewes and Newhaven.

ESCG is committed to reflecting the diversity of the people and communities it serves, to ensure a breadth of experiences and to govern a genuinely inclusive organisation.  Diversity brings competing perspectives and is an important protection against ‘groupthink’ at the Board level.  In this regard, the diversity of Governors ensures that decision-making perspectives are enhanced.  Diversity information is captured during application process and is used to support the Board enhance its diversification agenda.
