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.
