Boardroom Apprentices wanted: One week left to apply.

If you have ever thought about being on a committee or board and decided against it for what ever reason, this pilot programme just might help you bridge the gap between that aspiration and reality.

Boardrooms are places where decisions are made, those decisions in the voluntary and public sectors impact on services delivered right across our communities. We all have a role to play, a civic one. Why couldn’t you inform the delivery of services in our communities, why couldn’t you share your knowledge and skills to help these organisations deliver really well for the people it serves? You can is the answer, but that step can sometimes just be too big to take. This pilot programme is built on the basis that by providing you with training, experience and support this will better equip you to go forward for board position in the future.

The programme is aimed at people with no or very little boardroom experience (see information pack for eligibility). This programming is offering up to 25 boardroom apprentice positions providing a practical 12-month board placement. Alongside this there is a suite of training to help support you in your role and develop your knowledge and understanding. Each board will also provide their apprentice with a dedicated board buddy to support them through their placement.
