Seeking members with relevant skills.

Diocesan Board of Education


Board Member Recruitment

Our Board of Education, formed in 1830, serves 194 schools and 43,000 children. Many of our church schools were founded before that date, and the Board, or Council as it was called then, was formed to support their work and to promote new schools. Today, the Board of Education has a membership of ten; as we move into the new triennium we are seeking new members.

Our exciting plan for the next 5 years includes:

• Opening new church schools with church communities at their heart;
• Supporting strong school improvement to ensure that every church school is a great school;
• Placing chaplaincy and the development of spiritual leadership at the heart of our work;
• Supporting a culture of academy trusts, both church and non-church led, in which church school education flourishes; and
• Supporting the training, recruitment and retention of inspiring teachers who we deeply value for all that they give to the lives of children and young people.

We will make known the difference made by faith, belief and spiritual development, for mental health and well-being, not just of children but of the adults we serve. We aim to be a voice of influence locally, regionally and nationally, within the landscape of education and the church.

If you share an interest in serving children and young people in schools and parishes we would be pleased to hear from you. We need members who together bring a varied skill set: financial, business, commerce, human resources, legal and communications.

We have a particular need at this time for financial expertise such as chartered accountancy. The Board meets half-termly but there is a commitment to occasional meetings at other times.

If you would like to learn more please contact the clerk to the Board of Education, Sarah McNicol: . Please send your name and short CV to the same address by 14th September.
