THE ROLE OF THE IMC

In March 2017, UTC Bolton was judged to be inadequate by Ofsted. As a consequence, the existing Governing Body was ‘stood down’ and in line with Dept for Education requirements, an Interim Management Committee (IMC) was established. Its purpose is to have responsibility for the management of the budget, the curriculum, staffing, pay and performance management to enable the UTC to move forward at pace and consequently move out of the ‘Inadequate’ category.

Members of the IMC will hold office for the period that the IMC is in existence, although individual members may resign at any time.

Duties of the Interim Management Committee (IMC)

The IMC has taken on all functions on behalf of the Governing Body and conducts the UTC in a way that ensures improvement and promotes high standards of educational achievement. The IMC reports to the Governing Body on an information-only basis once a term.

The main function of the IMC is to help secure strong governance of the UTC, developing a sound basis for improvement, with the intention of enabling the UTC to rapidly secure sustainable improvement.

The IMC conducts its business in an open and transparent way in accordance with the principles of standards in public life as determined by the Nolan Committee, and with reference to ‘The Good Governance, Standards for Public Services’ document produced by the Independent Commission for Good Governance in Public Services.
