Finding the right skills for FE boards

Inspiring FE Governance is a free service dedicated to finding individuals with the right skills to serve on further education (FE) boards in England, including chairs of finance committees. Board members are committed volunteers who have a similar role to company non-executive directors. The service is funded by the Education and Training Foundation and run by Education and Employers, an independent charity. On this site, FE providers can register their vacancies and individuals can register their interest in serving as a board member.  Please note: The registration button above takes you to an Education and Employers sign up form.
