As it grows and furthers its aims to positively impact more disadvantaged students, Creative Education Trust seeks two new Non-Executive Directors, one with expertise in children's services, and another with expertise in school improvement.
Children's Services: Candidates will have senior-level experience working within a children's services organisation, such as a local authority or a charity and be able to advise the Trust as it seeks to build relationships with families living in areas of disadvantage. They will have operated in an organisation where particular measures are taken to protect the health, well-being, and safeguarding of individuals, allowing people, especially children, young people and vulnerable adults, to live free from abuse, harm, and neglect. Through this work, they may also bring expertise in safeguarding.
School Improvement: The successful candidate will have a senior background in an educational regulatory body or in improving multiple schools within a larger organisation. They will understand the politics of the sector, and know how to deal with regional schools commissioners / local authorities. Creative Education Trust is also interested in those with knowledge of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
In addition, the successful candidates will have sound judgement, strong communication skills and a willingness to commit the required time and effort. They must have high levels of integrity, strong interpersonal skills and the ability to challenge and advise the governing board and executive appropriately.
Creative Education Trust is open to suitably qualified candidates from any geography but is also interested in candidates with a connection to the Midlands or Norfolk.
