Section 12. Rector

A tertiary vocational college must have a rector. The board itself must appoint the rector. A rector must have the necessary academic and management qualifications. The students and staff must be heard before a rector is appointed. The Ministry may issue regulations concerning the requirements for rector qualifications and the procedure when appointing a rector.
If a case needs to be decided before the board can have a meeting, the rector will decide the case. The board may also authorise the rector to decide issues that should not be postponed until the next board meeting.
