Are you passionate about education?

If so, we're looking for three Trustees to join our Board, who can bring knowledge and expertise in Finance, Business Growth, Technology or Education/Academia. 

What will you be doing?

Who We Are: 

The Grand Union Partnership is a Multi-Academy Trust, which was established in September 2017. We aim to join schools together with the same values, for the benefit of all children within the Trust. We now have three schools within our MAT, all based within the Milton Keynes area, and have ambitious growth plans over the next 5 years.  

We are already seeing the benefits for children and staff alike, which includes improvements in developing a new curriculum across the trust, monitoring strategies and using data across the trust to ensure funding goes to the right group of children. We are constantly monitoring the improvements and have set challenging improvements for the future. 

 

What We’re Offering:

We are looking for three Trustees who are passionate about education, to join our Board of Trustees. Together we play an important role in setting the strategic direction for the MAT and we are accountable to the Secretary of State for the performance of the schools within it. 

This is a voluntary role, and you will need to be able to devote the necessary time and effort and attend all Board meetings and sub-committee meetings, as required.

 

You’ll also need to bring expertise in one of the following areas: 

  • Finance 
  • Business Growth 
  • Technology 
  • Education / Academia 

 

What you’ll get:

The opportunity to join us on our exciting journey of making a difference and shaping the future of education. 

If you’re interested, please send your CV and covering letter via the Reach Volunteering Platform

What are we looking for?

Previous Trustee experience would be advantageous, although we’re equally happy for individuals to develop into the role.

What difference will you make?

Trustees play an important role in setting the strategic direction for the MAT and we are accountable to the Secretary of State for the performance of the schools within it. 

What's in it for the volunteer?

Join us on our exciting journey of making a difference and shaping the future of education.
