Our Governance

Our training centre Governors play an important part in helping to raise the standards at Universal Skills Centre. They act as a critical friend, involved in the monitoring and evaluating of the apprenticeship delivery and performance. The Governors are responsible for setting strategic direction and ensuring accountability....

The Governing Body represents a wide range of expertise and is comprised of 8 Governors. This includes; Apprenticeship Manager, Delivery and IQA Manager, General Manager and Finance and Planning Manager. In addition, the Governing Body also has employee representatives from its key stakeholders in Siemens Metering, Search Energy, OVO Energy and Morrison Data Services.

There are 3 Governing Body meetings during each year. In addition there are sub-employer meetings for matters concerning Project Management, Staffing, Performance Management, Curriculum and Academic Standards, Finance and Pastoral Support. Governors also complete various training courses with safeguarding being a priority. All governors can be contacted via the training centre; Daniel Taylor is the chair of the governing body.
