Governance

Capital City College Group is the trading name of The WKCIC Group, an independent Corporation with exempt charity status formed under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992. The group was formed on 1 August 2016 through the merger of Westminster Kingsway College and City and Islington College. Capital City College Training was launched on 23 February 2017, encompassing the group’s apprenticeship and employer engagement offer. The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London joined the Group on 1 November 2017. The WKCIC Board is our governing body.

The Instrument and Articles of Government set down the powers, membership, roles and responsibilities of Corporations in Further Education colleges. The board is accountable for the use of public funds and has a duty of care for the assets of the colleges and the role of its members is similar to that of non-executive directors or trustees. This body is advised by a clerk who is employed directly by the corporation and who has access to independent professional advice.

Board

The board meets at least seven times a year. Its size and composition is drawn from businesses, the community, local authority, students and staff.
