Do you want to widen your professional network, develop your strategic thinking abilities, and learn new skills? We are currently seeking four non-executive directors who can help create excellent education and training opportunities for the people of Argyll & Bute, and Arran.
We are particularly seeking members with experience of:

These positions are not remunerated however reasonable travel and subsistence expenses will be reimbursed. Meetings can be attended by video conferencing and some of our current members live as far afield Edinburgh.
