Joining the Trustees

We are always interested in hearing from individuals who may be interested in serving on the Board. There are many reasons why this voluntary role might appeal. Your motivation might be to make a positive professional development step by enhancing your leadership skills, or you may have significant levels of expertise that the Board can benefit from. Perhaps you have specific interest in the provision of first class education for local youngsters or want to drive employability and raise aspirations in this area.

Independent Trustees are appointed on a basis of skill and our search and recruitment processes are designed to be open and transparent. Our procedures are published in Appendix 6 of our Standing Orders which can be found here. The Board values a diversity of opinion recognising the value this brings.

One way in which you can get a feel for what being a Trustee is all about is by browsing the Governance section of the website, and having a look through our meeting minutes. We also have the following literature for information:

If you have any questions regarding the work of the Board of Trustees please contact Joanne McDonnell, Governance Manager, on 01493 662234 or e-mail. And if you would like an inside opinion we will be happy to put you in touch with one of our existing Trustees. 

Being a Trustee is an opportunity for you to “give back” to the local community and make a positive contribution to this area.

"East Norfolk gave me the stepping stones I needed to be where I am today and it is safe to say I would not be in the position I am today without them and I am truly thankful for the help and support my tutors and the college gave me."
Louis Cook
"East Norfolk was such a wonderful college due to the dedication and commitment of the teaching staff to our learning, and their support throughout the academic year, from extra revision sessions to university applications."
Rebecca Wigmore
"ENSFC inspired me to follow my love of history and literature, with great teachers that pushed me to research and write to my full potential. I fondly remember forging great friendships, lively debates in classrooms, and supportive staff that brought out my confidence in the subjects that I now specialise in and teach myself."
Emma Butcher
Academic, author and broadcaster
"ENSFC really gave me the opportunity to study for A Levels that were closely aligned to my interests in an environment where I developed from a teenager into an adult. I really feel I came into my own between when I left high school and when I left ENSFC in a way that probably wouldn't have happened if I'd stayed at the same school "
Adam Smith
EN Alumni
"My memories of college are very positive ones! Not only did I meet some great people - both student and teachers, but it gave me the grounding to apply myself, to question and to think critically. ENSFC acted as a fantastic platform to help me understand what I wanted to do at university and beyond. "
Rebecca Mahony
Former EN Student
"East Norfolk helped massively in getting me to university. My a level subjects helped me to realise the topics I enjoyed the most, and ucas applications were dealt with simply with the help that was available for this. The learning environment at EN has also greatly helped me settle into the lecture teaching style, where self study learning is hugely encouraged."
