Borders College has one of the best records of learner success in Scotland and makes an essential contribution to the education and training of the Borders workforce.
We are seeking new members to join our Regional Board to help ensure that we continue that success. We are looking for individuals who share our commitment to providing the best possible learning experience to the people of the Borders and who can represent the interests of the Borders economy and communities.
We would welcome applications from those with experience of the key sectors in the Borders economy as well as the broader needs of the education, public, private and third sectors in the region and individuals with knowledge of business operations.In addition, the Board is especially keen to hear from those groups who are currently underrepresented on Boards of Scottish public bodies, such as disabled people, ethnic minorities, women, people under 50 and LGBT+ individuals.
Board members are not remunerated but travel and other allowable expenses will be paid. Time commitment varies but is unlikely to exceed two meetings a month.Training can be provided and an induction programme is offered to all members.
