 Board Members

Voluntary position (with expenses paid for meetings and events)

To enable the organisation to meet the ever-changing & growing challenges of the skills system and economy, CDN is expanding its Board and is seeking three outstanding new members to join in 2020.

Applications are being sought from individuals across the UK who have a passion and interest in advancing modern skills development. This is a highly enjoyable and varied board experience, and a high-profile opportunity to directly influence the quality of education in Scotland & further afield.

Board members would be expected to attend 5 meetings each year. Consideration will be given to making video conferencing facilities available for meetings.
