The Bell Foundation’s vision is to create opportunities, change lives, and overcome disadvantage through language education. We deliver this vision through three strategic programmes, “English as an Additional Language (EAL)”, “Criminal Justice” and “English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)”. The programmes reach beneficiary groups for whom English is an Additional Language; learners in the education system, victims, offenders, and ex-offenders in contact with the criminal justice system; and adults and young people who use English as a second or additional language. The Foundation has grown since its beginnings in 2012 to quickly become a respected nationally credible player. It is implementing its significant ambitions to achieve system change and practical impact on the ground.
The Foundation works both at a grassroots level, through direct delivery of programmes in schools and grant funded partnerships in prisons, and at national level, through the commissioning of research and engaging in the development of policy and practice. The Foundation works with both large strategic partners and smaller organisations, including schools, local authorities and teaching schools, academy chains, leading universities and third sector organisations.
2020 has been a challenging year for the beneficiaries that our programmes reach and the long-term impact will be significant. We continue to respond to the crisis through our support to schools and parents delivering home learning and through flexibility with our grants partners.
We are seeking to diversify the Board and particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups so that our Board is more representative of the communities we serve.
One Trustee will chair either the Audit and Risk Committee or the Asset Management Committee and therefore needs to bring significant financial and asset management experience.
If you feel you have the skills, time, enthusiasm, and commitment to join the Board, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
Closing date: 29th March 2021.
