Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees are collectively responsible for the charity’s long-term success. The Board sets its strategic aims, monitors the performance of management against the strategic aims, ensures good governance, assesses its risk appetite and ensures that robust processes are in place to challenge information and make informed decisions on the charity’s performance and viability.

Following a strategic review of ColegauCymru, Members approved at an EGM on 18 July 2017 changes to the charity’s constitutional structure and its governing document which came into effect on 1 August 2017.

The changes comprised of a new representational group structure within the charity, with its own terms of reference, focused on policy and issues affecting the post-compulsory education sector, namely the CEO/Principals’ Forum.

Under the revised Articles of Association, the Chair and Deputy Chair of the CEO/Principals’ Forum are appointed the Chair and Deputy Chair of the newly constituted charity Board. The Board comprises of a minimum of five and a maximum of six Trustees. The Chair and Deputy Chair serve concurrently for two years whilst the other Trustees may serve for an initial three years, with the option to seek re-appointment for a further three-year term.
