The Board of Governors play an important role in the life of RCS and we plan to recruit several new Board members over the next six months. Governors are integral to the development and implementation of the Royal Conservatoire’s strategic objectives and offer constructive challenge as well as the monitoring and evaluating of performance in line with these objectives. In more general terms, Governors have an important role in supporting the delivery of the conservatoire’s strategic priorities including its teaching excellence, innovation and sustainability agendas.

In addition, Governors will be expected and encouraged to attend performances and act as ambassadors for the institution.
