We are one of 65 organisations from across the UK who have been confirmed to join UK Boardroom Apprentice 2024 as Host Boards providing a safe seat at the table for aspiring board members to learn.
The 12-month board learning, development and placement programme enables those who would like to serve on a public or third sector board to learn and gain the experience that they need to take that step. 372 Boardroom Apprentices have embarked on their personal journey to serve on a public or third sector board since its inception in 2017.
Boardroom Apprentice founder Eileen Mullan said: “Boardroom Apprentice was created to deliver diversity, create change, and realise aspirations. Our vision is simple – to bridge the gap between aspiration and reality.
Successful applicants will have the opportunity to join a host board for a year to learn how they can bring fresh perspectives and diverse thinking to boardrooms across the UK. Over a twelve-month window, Boardroom Apprentices will get practical board experience, a suite of learning days, and support to fully equip them to serve on a board in the public or third sector in the future.
Open to those aged 18 or over from all backgrounds and all abilities, the programme seeks to enable a wider diversity of individuals to play their part within boardrooms, allowing those without board experience to enhance their knowledge and understanding through in-depth learning and support.
