Council and Committees
Our Council, of up to 12 members, focuses on strategic policy issues, major matters of substance and significance and maintaining oversight of our activities. Committees have been established to advise Council on particular areas of work.
We hold around eight Council meetings per calendar year. We also follow a cycle of visits to institutions and host a number of committee meetings and events.
All our Council business is conducted in accordance with its Standing Orders.
Upon appointment, Council members sign the HEFCW Council Members Code of Practice which includes an agreement to adhere to the Seven Principles of Public Life.
