Consider becoming a Board Member at Wales PPA

Wales PPA is a national charity and membership organisation.  Who promote and support bilingual pre-school care, education and learning through play across Wales by offering support on all aspects of early year provision including registration, business support, improving quality and workforce development.

The Challenge

It’s an exciting time not just within the sector with the 30 hour offer and Welsh Government’s initiative, Cymraeg 2050 to achieve 1 million Welsh speakers in Wales by 2050, but for Wales PPA as well, as we look on diversifying our income streams and opening new projects.

Wales PPA are now looking for additional Trustees who share their passion and commitment and who have the skills, knowledge and experience to support excellent governance and oversight of our newly emerging strategy.  They welcome applications both from those who have previous direct experience of Board level governance and those who do not.

The role is unpaid but immensely rewarding in terms of the positive impacts their work has on our next generation. Trustee meetings are held up to six times a year, and strategic away day takes place once a year.  As a Board member you will be entitled to “out of pocket” expenses such as travel costs, and costs incurred whilst on the association’s business.

If you’re interested in making a difference to the early years sector in Wales, then they would love to hear from you.
