Chair of Trustees Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education

Location: Exeter

Date Posted: 15/04/2020

Closing Date: 08/07/2020

Job description

Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education (The Deaf Academy) is looking for a talented, passionate individual to become our new Chair of Trustees.

Our vision is to see Deaf people valued by themselves and their society, being confident, well educated, independent, able to communicate, and with good and appropriate employment and housing.

Our reputation has been built on changing the lives of Deaf young people. The Charity has been providing education and care for Deaf young people since 1826, through our Deaf Academy School, College and Children’s Home.

We specialise in supporting Deaf children and young people who also have multiple or complex additional needs, including multi-sensory impairment, autism and physical disabilities. Each student receives tailored support, ensuring they are enabled to meet their educational and personal goals, growing in confidence and working towards independence each day.

The Academy, our residential service and Children’s Home enable our Deaf young people to develop the confidence to engage with the wider world and participate in it as independent people. From Spring/Summer 2020 our services will be provided from bespoke state of the art new facilities in Exmouth Devon. Designed to create a Deaf-friendly space with a language-rich environment of British Sign Language (BSL) and English to help our young people flourish, our new facilities will help us become a flag-ship provider of support for Deaf people, in a local community which is actively seeking to become the first deaf-friendly town in the UK.

Who we are looking for?

We are looking for a Chair of Trustees to lead our Charity on the next stage of our journey, with the skills, knowledge and expertise to help drive our organisation forward, shaping our strategy for the 21st Century as we aim for outstanding performance in all that we do.

You will have a proven, professional track record of leadership at the highest level. You will share our vision, and have the ambition to take a leading role in our journey to be recognised as an outstanding organisation.  Ideally, you will have experience of corporate and charity governance and working with or as part of a Board.

This is a great opportunity to work within a dynamic team at a very exciting time in the Charity’s history. If you wish to make a difference to the lives of Deaf young people and can offer energy and enthusiasm, then we would like to hear from you.

There are more details of the role on our website (details provided below). For an informal discussion with a current Trustee and more information please contact Matt Bryan, Human Resources Manager (contact details shown below).

Closing date for applications: 08 May 2020 at 12pm

Provisional Interview date: Friday 05 June 2020

The Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young adults; as such an enhanced DBS disclosure is required.

The Academy is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion for all its students and staff and would welcome applications from all under-represented groups including Deaf and disabled people.
