    The Complete Works

We are an education charity and registered alternative provision with a 20-year track record, built on an ethos of creative and bespoke learning. We work with young people who are unable to attend mainstream school for a variety of reasons including mental health, complex educational needs, previous school exclusions, or medical conditions. Through a combination of group and 1:1 education, extra-curricular creative projects and holistic wellbeing support, we provide our students with a rounded and supportive educational experience, helping them to overcome their personal challenges and thrive in our school community. Since being founded in 1999, we have positively changed the lives of countless young people.

We are seeking new Trustees to join our Board and help to oversee the operation of the school. It is important that all Trustees share a passion for our work and our commitment to being a diverse, inclusive and creative educational provision. An understanding of and a willingness to train in the principles of good governance in the charity sector is essential. We are particularly looking for candidates with influence and authority, strategic thinking and sound judgement and the ability to be outstanding advocates for the charity. To complement the current board's skills, we are seeking individuals with relevant experience and knowledge at a senior level in Human Resources, Finance and Charity Law.

We embrace diversity and wish to continue to extend the range of backgrounds and perspectives represented throughout the charity, and within our Board of Trustees.

The role of trustee is voluntary and involves attending a minimum of 4 board meetings a year.The position is unpaid, but reasonable expenses may be claimed.
