Join the Board of one of Scotland’s most successful and responsive Regional Colleges
West Lothian College is an award winning provider of further and higher education based in Livingston. West Lothian is renowned for its successful collaborations with external partners including employers, businesses, skills organisations, universities, public sector and government organisations and community groups.
West Lothian College is a welcoming, bright and modern environment, which is well equipped to ensure that students have the best facilities and resources to help develop their learning and skills. The College is an essential provider of a vast range of courses all focused on developing relevant skills for employment to help students in their future career or to enhance current career prospects for those already working.
The Board’s vision is:
“to be a college which delivers a highly skilled and enterprising workforce of the future”.
We are looking for a new Board member who shares this vision and can contribute at a strategic level to the work of the Board:
to bring private sector accountancy expertise to support the work of the Board, and the Finance and General Purposes Committee in particular.
The Board is keen to hear from those groups who are currently under represented on Boards of Scottish Public Bodies such as disabled people, ethnic minorities and women. We are particularly keen to improve the current gender balance of the Board.
Board members are not remunerated but travel and other allowable expenses will be paid. Time commitment varies but you should expect to attend four full Board meetings per year and four sub- committee meetings in addition to supporting some of the College’s major events. An induction programme is provided for all new Board members supported by training and development opportunities.
An information pack and application form is attached. The closing date is 1st June 2017 at 12 noon. If you have any enquiries please contact Joanna Paterson, Secretary to the Board by email at email@example.com
