Job Description

At Waltham Forest College we strive to make a positive impact on our local communities and to be the first choice for vocational excellence. With an income of around £20m, a broad offer and a focus on outstanding teaching, learning and support, we make a huge impact on the success and well-being of our learners, employers and local communities.

Our ongoing journey of transformation over the last few years has brought about impressive successes in our learners’ outcomes and an aspirational culture with a passionate, committed workforce. In addition, we have developed a superb campus, doubled our apprenticeship numbers year on year and strengthened our platform for future development.

Key to our success will be ensuring that a responsive, high-quality curriculum serves the needs of our communities and that our teaching and learning are innovative and consistently striving for excellence.

We are now seeking new governors to complement the skills within our Board who will strategically support our forward trajectory and ensure that the college is effectively positioned to make the most of future opportunities.  We are seeking individuals who have experience of working strategically and can demonstrate a real passion for empowering and transforming the lives of our diverse communities.

You may have previous non-executive director (NED) or trustee experience, or perhaps this is your first NED role; either way you will benefit from an induction and training programme and support from our experienced board members and Clerk to the Corporation.
