We are looking for someone to join our Board who is committed to the values of Central YMCA and has a genuine interest in the work we do. This is an exciting role at a time of significant change that will give challenge and reward in equal measure.
About the charity
Central YMCA is the founding Association of the world’s largest global youth movement which began life in 1844. Our ambition is for every individual to thrive in body, mind and spirit, through imaginative and healthy activity, creative learning programmes and supportive social opportunities.
Through our five operations, three of which are national, YMCA Awards; YMCAfit; YMCA Training; YMCA Club and One KX, we exist to enable the personal and professional development of young people and those in need, within our local communities in London and across England.
About the role and you
All Trustees need to be able to provide effective strategic oversight of the charity’s activities. We are seeking a new member with experience of working at a senior level in a post-16 education or vocational education setting or local authority involved in education strategy. This role will support the Board to monitor the performance and quality of our education provision to ensure the best possible outcomes for our learners.
You will have an understanding of the regulatory framework in education including the requirements of the Ofsted common inspection framework and ideally a strong working knowledge of the government’s safeguarding, Prevent and child protection strategies.
The Board currently meets ten times a year which includes an annual away day to focus on strategy. The role is unremunerated but reasonable expenses will be covered and any required training will be provided.
