Cobham Intermediate Board of Trustees (B.O.T) have an exciting opportunity for two energetic community members to join our Board as we move into the final design preparations and work towards the building of our new school.
The B.O.T are seeking expressions of interest for two co-opted positions to begin in February 2016. With B.O.T elections to take place mid-2016, these positions have been created to complement the current boards expertise and ensure there is continuity between the existing and newly elected boards as we work through this exciting period in Cobham’s history.
The two positions are:
This position is to work with current Board members on the design and building of our new school during the next two years. For this position it is our preference to co-opt an individual with a back ground or experience in the design / building of major projects.
Fundamental to this position is:
– We are looking for an individual with marketing or public relations expertise / experience.
– It would it be advantageous to have previous governance experience.
A key aspect of this position will be to ensure the new board will have an in-depth understanding of the work that has been carried out by the board during the last 2.5 years in preparation for our new school opening in 2018.
Both positions are for two years. If you have any questions relating to these positions please email Shane Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org
To express an interest for these positions, please email a brief summary of your experience and why you would like to be considered for a position to the Board at email@example.com by Friday 20 November 2015.
With a consistent roll of over 600, Cobham Intermediate is able to provide significant resources and facilities specifically tailored to meet the needs of year 7 and 8 students. Our innovative teaching programmes include accelerated classes for the highly able, inquiry immersion classes, learning and special needs support, bi-lingual provision, English as a Second Language (ESOL) and high quality international student care. Core classroom teachers work collaboratively to cater for the needs of individual students. We employ specialist staff not only in the technology subjects (food, fabrics, wood, metal/plastics), but also in music, science, and physical education. This allows for smaller class sizes and more comprehensive, professional activities in these areas of the curriculum. Cobham offers a diversity of opportunities across academic, cultural and sporting domains, a strength that meets the educational needs of our multi-cultural intake and provides rich experiences across the curriculum. Our students excel in these fields, all of them achieving successes in a positive, caring environment.
All students (and staff!) are encouraged to live up to our motto “Achieving for Life”.
