Instrument and Articles of Government

The Instrument and Articles of Government set out the regulatory framework within which a further education college or corporation operates.  They define the legal responsibilities of the governing body, ensuring that it acts legally and they provide the underpinning authority for the proper management of college business.

The Instrument outlines the constitution of the corporation, the appointment and dismissal of its members and the conduct of meetings.

The Articles define the powers and duties of the corporation, the principal (chief executive) and the clerk.  They cover the responsibilities of the governing body, the role of its committees and they set out the basis for dealing with certain matters including audit arrangements, the appointment and dismissal of staff and student discipline.
