The Board of Trustees are looking to appoint new education and business leaders who have specific experience in the field of the education sector and finance.
As a key member of The Board of Trustees, you will support the Trust in achieving its objectives set out within its strategic plan, in particular around Quality of Education and Growth and Sustainability.
You will be responsible for
• ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
• holding executive leaders to account for the educational and financial performance of a charitable company funded by the public purse.
The Board of Trustees oversees the business of the Multi Academy Trust and may exercise all the powers of the trust in compliance with its charitable objects, company and charity law.
The GLA Trust board provide a very strong system of governance. This has evolved over the life of the Trust focusing on holding the senior leaders robustly to account for pupil outcomes. They set out the academy’s vision, its values, the shared moral purpose that run through all the academy’s actions.
The GLA vision of “Outstanding Outcomes for Children” will underpin the school vision of the new school. This vision is built on the following pillars:
• The best for everyone, to get the best from everyone
• Knowledge to empower
• Education with ambition
• Leadership at every level
• Continuous improvement
We recognise the power of schools working together in a single governance structure with clear accountability arrangements. Our Trust board provides dynamic leadership bringing a broad range of qualifications, talents and skills that support highly effective decision making based on sound risk assessment and enabling robust challenge. The trust undertook consultation and trials during 2019-2020 of a new model of governance, replacing local governing bodies with Academy Improvement Boards and Parent Advisory Groups in all schools.
The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young persons and must ensure that the highest priority is given following the guidance and regulations to safeguard children and young people. The successful candidate will be required to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Baring Service and qualification checks.
