Preston Vocational Centre is a small local charity committed to providing construction based vocational training of the highest quality to young people and adults in Preston and the surrounding area. The Centre offers a range of training, learning and development opportunities to young people and adults in order that they can progress to apprenticeships, employment or further education and take a positive step to achieving their potential. We are currently looking to recruit two new Trustees to the Board of Preston Vocational Centre to ensure we have the capacity and skills to oversee the continued success of the Centre. We are particularly seeking to attract individuals with knowledge, skills and experience in the following areas: - education and vocational training;
- learning and development;
- community development or charitable work;
- commercial and business awareness, particularly in the Lancashire area. We are looking to recruit the successful applicants directly to the positions of Chair and Vice Chair of the Board. Therefore, applicants will be required to demonstrate strong leadership skills, preferably in the charity or education sector. The roles will be unpaid and voluntary although reasonable expenses are paid, including travel. Board members are expected to attend and participate at six Board meetings per year and special events, where possible, as well as acting in an ambassadorial role for PVC.
