Join the non-executive board of Inspire Education Group, and apply your experience of strategic finance, curriculum, or people services to ensure the college group achieves its ambition to be the first-choice provider of education and training across Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire.

We are seeking strategic leaders from the region with the capacity to support our non-executive governing board and executive leadership team in achieving the objectives as set out in our 2021 – 2024 Strategic Plan and beyond.

With a relentless focus on excellence, we will continue to develop exceptional learning opportunities across our two campuses, responding to growth in the city of Peterborough, the rural catchment of Stamford and the surrounding towns and villages.

As a college group, we will continue to meet the demographic uptrend in the number of young learners by maintaining a broad and inclusive post-16 curriculum in both key locations and improving access to and participation in higher education. We will extend our capacity to deliver more apprenticeships, higher technical qualifications, degrees, and specialist training for employers. We will work with key stakeholders to tailor our provision to local skills needs and develop opportunities for upskilling, retraining, personal progression, and business growth.

By joining the Inspire Education Group Board, you will be positively contributing and having a direct impact on the future success of the college group and the life chances of our students. You will support the development and influence the direction of Inspire Education Group at a time of great momentum for us as we look to develop our organisation and provide excellence in education and training for young people and adults across the Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire regions.

With an ambitious strategy to be the first choice technical and professional college for the region, we are seeking senior and strategic leaders from the local area to join our non-executive governing body.

To enable us to achieve our objectives, we aim to appoint up to three non-executive governors who have a passion for technical and professional education and training, and a commitment to supporting our college group’s ambition to build on the successes and use the strengths of both colleges. This passion and commitment should be underpinned by a track record of significant and impactful leadership in one or more of the following areas of expertise:

  • Strategic financial planning and audit
  • Education and curriculum strategy (school or further education)
  • Organisational development, diversity & inclusion, and human resources

These roles offer a fantastic opportunity to join an ambitious and committed non-executive board, and genuinely have an impact on the future success of the college group and our students.

This is an exciting time to join the non-executive board of Inspire Education Group, as we truly believe our ambitious and forward-looking strategy will ensure we continue to make a demonstrable and positive contribution to the communities we serve.

We recognise that our non-executive board is not presently reflective of the diverse communities served by Inspire Education Group. It is because of this that we particularly encourage women and people from ethnic minority communities to apply.

Closing Date: Monday 4th October 2021
