Governor vacancies


Activate Learning Education Trust wants you!

Activate Learning Education Trust (ALET) is a successful and growing trust of schools and UTCs in Berkshire and Oxfordshire, sponsored by the Activate Learning group of schools and colleges.

Having established new technical schools in Reading and Oxfordshire, ALET is now taking a number of existing schools into the family. These include Theale Green School in West Berkshire and UTC Swindon in Wiltshire. The ALET Trust is growing quickly and successfully, with an excellent track record in the recovery of quality of education and finances within a sustainable business model for education.

Each of our schools operates a local governing committee with delegated responsibilities from the main Trust Board for quality of education, financial sustainability and school/community ethos.

Play a part in our success

We have vacancies on the local boards of a number of our schools in Berkshire and Oxfordshire:

  • Bicester Technology Studio: 2
  • The Bicester School: 3 vacancies
  • UTC Heathrow: 9 vacancies
  • UTC Oxfordshire: 2 vacancies
  • UTC Reading: 3 vacancies
  • UTC Swindon: 1 vacancy

We are looking for individuals to support and challenge school and Trust leadership, driving up standards in education. You will be able to give us some time in a voluntary capacity, bringing a sharp edge, strong analysis and deep questioning skills.

You will have gained experience and skills in a number of walks of life, possibly in education but most likely in business (commercial or public sector).

We also have a number of specialist co-opted roles available to assist the Trust in supporting some of its most vulnerable learners, often at risk of exclusion from mainstream education – and your experience here would be a great asset.

Express your interest

For an informal chat, please contact Heledd Walker, Clerk to the ALET Trust, or call 07795 370356.

To apply, please send us a brief resume of your education, experience and skills, telling us why you would love to make a contribution to the work of the Trust. Please include in which areas of Berkshire and Oxfordshire you could operate. We will be in touch shortly to discuss your application.
