Camden Learning is seeking to appoint two or more Non-Executive Directors to its Board.
Since its establishment in 2017, Camden Learning has become a significant force for improvement for Camden schools. It is a company limited by guarantee and all Camden state schools are members of the company. Camden Learning enjoys strong support from the Council which also has two Director places on the Board.
An education partnership jointly owned by Camden Council and Camden’s schools, Camden Learning seeks to build a strong education system by acting as an engine of improvement, brokering connections, support and initiatives across schools. Schools themselves, through Camden Learning, have taken on responsibility for ensuring that every school has the support it needs to improve and achieve well.
In order to drive the next stage of Camden Learning’s development, we are seeing to recruit two or more additional Directors to the board of Directors. The Directors oversee the strategic direction of the business, delegating day to day management to the Managing Director and his team. The roles will be “non-executive” and on a volunteer, unpaid basis. It is a fantastic opportunity to use your skills to make a difference to children and young people in Camden.
We are especially keen to hear from individuals who will increase the diversity of the Board. More information on this is in the role profile linked to below.
Included in the pack of information for you is
- The role profile which describes the role of Director and the experience, skills and experience we are looking for
- A copy of our Annual Review 2020-21, which provides further insight into the work of Camden Learning
- A copy of Leading Locally: London Education Partnerships which provides some insight into the wider picture across London
- A copy of the Statutory Accounts for the 19-20 financial year
