The Chair of Governors from Nottingham College has been recognised in HM The King’s Birthday Honours List 2024.

Carole Thorogood, who has been Chair since 2017, has been recognised as Medallist of the Order of the British Empire, in acknowledgement of her services within further education (FE) over the last 18 years.

During her tenure at Nottingham College and before then as Chair of Central College Nottingham, Carole has steered transformational change, overcome an extraordinarily challenging financial landscape for the college and delivered education improvement to benefit Nottingham and beyond.

This has culminated in the delivery of the flagship £58m City Hub in the centre of Nottingham, one of the largest investments of its kind for any further education college in the country. City Hub houses a 200-seat theatre, a gourmet training restaurant and state-of-the-art classrooms and learning facilities for students.

Today, Nottingham College is the only FE college serving the city, with around 21,000 learners enrolling every year. An award-winning education institution, the college prides itself on its responsiveness to the educational and training needs of the region, to ensure students are equipped with the skills and attributes that will enable them to make a positive contribution to the economy
