Open Awards is a national Awarding Organisation and Access Validating Agency. We design and accredit qualifications from Entry Level to Access to Higher Education Diplomas. We work with our centres, employers and learners to seek to ‘change lives through learning’.

We now have 1 Trustee vacancies.

We are looking for someone who cares about learning and helping people reach their potential. Training will be given on our legal and regulatory requirements but some experience or knowledge would be useful. We are particularly looking for people with current experience of working within Higher Education who can help us develop our existing Access to Higher Education provision.

The commitment is 3 half days and 1 full planning day a year with a further 3 half days for those who represent the Board on one of our committees.
