The Welsh Government is seeking to appoint 8 new Council members to the EWC for a four year term commencing on 1 April 2019.
This is an exciting opportunity for individuals who want to contribute to improving the standards of teaching and quality of learning in Wales. To maintain public confidence in the educational workforce, applicants must be passionate about safeguarding the interests of learners, parents and the public.
Individuals will need to be motivated and diligent with a genuine interest in educational matters in Wales. Collectively, Council members set the strategic direction for the EWC, and are responsible for its governance and so therefore applicants will need to demonstrate an interest in developing the overall vision of the EWC and understand its unique position as the independent body responsible for registering and regulating the education workforce in Wales.
Applications are welcomed from anyone who has a keen interest in playing a crucial part in the future of the EWC. Successful candidates will be asked to commit up to 12 days per annum to attend Council and Committee meetings and other EWC events.
The closing date for applications is Tuesday 27 November 2018.
