Life as a Trustee with the Co-operative College

Being a trustee with the Co-operative College is a varied and engaging role, which offers a wealth of networking opportunities as well as the chance to contribute to an organisation with more than 100 years of co-operative learning history under its belt. Trustees can make a real difference to people’s lives by supporting the College in putting co-operative learning at the heart of communities and workplaces, both in the UK and abroad.

It’s your chance to influence the future of co-operative education, working in partnership with the College leadership team and fellow trustees from across the co-operative sector. As well as attending board meetings and our AGM, you’ll be able to join committees and working groups to shape the College’s work in areas that align with your particular area of interest or expertise – whether that’s the co-operative movement, finance, education or something else.

The period of office is three years. No specific experience is required, just a commitment to the co-operative values and principles, and to attend an average of six (online) meetings per year, plus any strategic planning days, induction/training and sub-committee meetings. Most of our meetings are held virtually, meaning that your geographical location shouldn’t be a barrier and while we try to get together every now and then (usually in Manchester), there’s no obligation to attend if travelling is difficult. Reasonable expenses will be paid though, if you do attend any meetings or events in person or incur other costs on behalf of the College. You will also need to have access to your own IT equipment and the internet, as well as a suitable space to join online meetings.

The College is an educational charity with a mission to make the world a more co-operative place through education (find out more about our aims and objectives in our strategy) and we invite you to bring your experience and skills to help the College to do this.
