New College Worcester (NCW) is a nationally and internationally regarded non-maintained specialist school, devoted to the education of visually impaired young people aged 11 – 19.  NCW has a Good OFSTED report and an Outstanding Care report.  We aim to give our students the best start in life and we are dedicated to improving the education and other opportunities that we offer them so that they are successful in their examinations and develop effective independent living skills. 

The Governing Body is seeking two Trustee Governors to join the Governing Body.  The particular skills and experience we are looking for in the Trustee Governors include financial management, business, education, fundraising and human resources management.  Good interpersonal skills, an enthusiasm for what we do and empathy for people with a visual impairment are essential for our Governors.


The role of Trustee Governor involves a time commitment of between six and ten days a year. The positions are voluntary.


Every student at NCW has a tailored programme, carefully planned and delivered to meet their individual needs in three key areas; academic achievement, independent living skills and involvement in extracurricular activities at the College and in the community.

The opportunities provided to students in these three areas of provision play a crucial role in the development of confidence and self-esteem and preparation for life beyond our College.

  • Academic focus for students with a visual impairment
  • Expert subject teachers qualified to teach the visually impaired
