Becoming a Governor

Would you like to become more involved in the community and play a key role in helping to shape the character, strategic direction and mission of Queen Alexandra College.

The College is a charity and specialist provider of education, training and independence skills for people with vision impairment and other disabilities.

The Trustees are looking for motivated and dynamic volunteers to complement their current Board of Governors. Of particular interest will be those with expertise and skills in the following areas:

  • Further Education and particularly specialist education
  • Education funding
  • Fundraising and Marketing
  • Local Authority background

Applications from women and members of minority ethnic communities are particularly welcomed as the Board is under-represented in these areas.

For an informal chat about the role of governors at QAC, please contact Alison Lydon, Clerk to Governors on 0121 428 5022 or 

Applications in writing to demonstrate the above should be made to Alison Lydon, Clerk to Governors, Queen Alexandra College, Court Oak Road, Harborne, Birmingham B17 9TG.

What the students say

QAC has helped me to be more independent. I have made so many friends here and receive lots of support from staff but most importantly, we all have lots of fun!
