About VTCT

The Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) is one of the UK’s largest technical and vocational awarding and assessment organisations.

VTCT seeks to advance education for the public benefit by enabling learners to gain additional skills through vocational education and apprenticeships to have a direct line of sight to a job or enhanced career prospects through acquiring higher-level skills, and has so far supported over a million people in doing just that.

VTCT is looking to recruit three new members to join its Board of Trustees, and is inviting applications from individuals with a background in the further/higher education sectors or those with business or marketing skills obtained within its core areas of hair, beauty, complementary therapy and sports.

It’s an exciting time to join VTCT as the Government implements major reforms to the technical and vocational education landscape. New trustees will be expected to support VTCT’s strong growth as the charity expands its portfolio of more than 1,900 public and private education centres across both the UK and worldwide.
