We are two teachers whose goal is to convert a double decker bus into a mobile classroom to visit disadvantaged primary-age children and offer free tuition within the community.

What will you be doing?

We have x3 trustees but welcome more and especially invite any secretaries to help guide us on our journey to become a registered charity. This would allow us to access vital funding for the initial purchasing of a double decker bus and all the necessary materials, books and technology.

Our charity purpose is 'For the public benefit, the advancement of education is given to disadvantaged children in areas of deprivation through communication and collaboration with local schools to close the attainment gap, consequently, enabling children to progress and access better life chances.'

If you have any experience in education, setting up charities, being a secretary or anything related to charities we would be very interested in hearing from you.

This post is on a volunteer basis but trustees may be reimbursed for things agreed in advance.

What are we looking for?

Ideally, you will have experience in primary education, whether from being a governor or being an employee within a school. However, this is not mandatory and we are more interested in anybody with charity experience, especially those who have helped setup a charity in the past.

What difference will you make?

With your help we want to develop a charity that is unique in its approach to education. By helping us network with schools, local authorities and parents we hope you can help tackle the attainment gap that develops so early in children's lives.

What's in it for the volunteer?

Volunteering as a trustee for a new unique charity like ours will develop a diverse skillset.
