Recruitment of Board Members

Friday 21 Dec 2018

There is now an exciting opportunity to be part of a defining era that will see the transformation of the qualifications system in Wales as we look to appoint two new members to the Board of Qualifications Wales. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about improving education in Wales and want to make a real difference to the lives of our children, young people and adult learners. You must also be able to inspire Qualifications Wales staff so that they are fully engaged in delivering forthcoming changes to the qualifications system. We want people who think differently, understand how to make an impact and are prepared to challenge in the quest to be the very best.

We want a Board that has a diverse range of relevant skills so we are looking for expertise in the following specialisms;

  • Curriculum – a senior leader with current or very recent experience of developing and implementing a secondary school curriculum. Having successfully developed, implemented and evaluated your school’s curriculum, you will understand the challenges involved and the potential benefits for learners (1 post); and 
  • Finance – a qualified accountant with experience of providing expert and strategic financial oversight, preferably with a good understanding of public sector finance (1 post).
