2 x Trustee Vacancies

Closing Date: 27 September 2021

ColegauCymru is a post-16 education charity. We believe that all learners have the right to a world-class education, delivered in a safe, diverse, and inclusive setting and within a further education sector which supports the wider community, employers, and the economy.

We’re pleased to be growing and diversifying our Board of Trustees. Trustees help us account for the use of our members’ charitable subscriptions and the grants we receive from a range of external funders such as the Welsh and UK Governments.

Trustees are independent of our Members’ Forum. The current vacancies seek people to represent the wider public interest in post-16 education alongside the views of the members and their governing bodies.

We are currently looking to recruit two trustees:

  • one who can bring to the board the views of a college governing body, and 
  • one who can share with us the wider perspective of learners, employers or business.
