Standards and Performance Committee


The Standards and Performance Committee (SPC) acts as a governing body for the Academy.

As a Trust we also have a Board of Trustees who have ultimate authority over all our Academies. Shireland Biomedical UTC has an active SPC and the names and roles of its members can be found below.


The Standards and Performance Committee will be responsible for monitoring and reviewing the operational day-to-day running of the Academy. In addition to this, it will act as a consultative body for the main Board.
