Decision details

Southend Adult Community College - Governance Arrangements

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Cabinet considered a report of the Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Director (Growth and Housing) providing an update the governance arrangements in relation to Southend Adult Community College (“the College”) following the Council’s senior management restructure.




1. That the updated Scheme of Delegation at Appendix 1 to the submitted report, be approved.




2. That the Cabinet Member with responsibility for learning be approved as the Council representative on the College’s Governing Body.


Reason for Decision


The College is part of the Council and the Scheme of Delegation sets out the governance relationship for the College in relation to the rest of the Council.   An up-to-date Scheme of Delegation and representation on the Governing Body are good practice.


Other Options


There is an existing Scheme of Delegation (dated November 2018) which could be retained however this would not be up-to-date and an accurate reflection of the Council-College relationship.


Note: The decision in 1 above constitutes an Executive Function.  The decision in 2 above constitutes a Council Function.
