Board of Directors

Applications are invited for five places on the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol’s Board of Directors.

This is an exciting opportunity for individuals who are keen to use their skills and experiences to join a team that leads an ambitious national planning body for which the Welsh language is at the heart of its purpose and vision.

The Coleg leads the development of Welsh-medium and bilingual education and training in the post-compulsory sector in Wales. The Coleg achieves this by working in partnership with universities, further education institutions and apprenticeship providers to build a first-class, inclusive Welsh-medium education and training system.

As a Director, you will play a part in making key decisions on the Coleg’s strategy and policies. You will contribute to the combined skills, expertise and knowledge of the Directors as a body to ensure that the Board fulfils its responsibilities and maintains the highest standards of corporate governance.

We are looking specifically for individuals who have experience of management or delivery in higher education, experience of the apprenticeship sector, or of further education, financial and budgetary expertise, experience in the private sector or of running a company. We want to ensure that we have a Board that reflects the population of Wales, so we are looking specifically to increase the representation of women and Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people.

The appointments will be for four years. Usually the commitment will require the equivalent of one day a month of your time.

The Coleg welcomes applications from all sections of the community. The principles of fair and open competition will apply, and the appointment will be made on merit.

Closing date: 31 January 2021
