Why Supporting Communities is supporting Boardroom Apprentice
“Due to the success of our involvement in Boardroom Apprentice in its inaugural pilot year and again in 2019/20 and this current year, the SC Board feel it would be an excellent opportunity to continue to support this excellent and worthwhile initiative. For SC’s Board, Succession Planning is something which is very high on our list of priorities and we see Boardroom Apprentice as a perfect way to encourage and support ‘younger’ professionals or indeed those who feel that they haven’t the necessary skills to become board members. Boardroom Apprentice is also a much needed resource to refresh our sector i.e. VCSE If SC’s Board can attract an Apprentice with an interest in the work we deliver and has the skill set that our Board is looking for – we would be very open to that person becoming a permanent member of our Board in the future.”
