Volunteers wanted for education appeal panels


VOLUNTEERS are being sought to join Warrington’s Independent Education Appeal Panels.
People with an interest in education who have free time during the day and would like to contribute to the local community might find becoming a panel member is for them.
The borough council is looking for members the following categories:
* Lay people – Someone without any personal experience in the management of a school or providing education in a school, except as a governor or other voluntary capacity.
* People with experience in education – Someone who is familiar with educational conditions in the Warrington area or is a parent/guardian of registered pupils at school.
No specific panel experience is required to apply as appropriate training will be provided and all hearings will be supported by an experienced clerk. Excellent listening skills and the ability to make balanced and objective decisions would be an advantage for applicants.
Panel member roles are voluntary and unpaid, but members receive travel expenses for all meetings they attend. The majority of the meetings will be held during the day at Warrington Town Hall, where refreshments and parking will be provided.
Anyone who would like to apply to become a school appeals panel member, should contact the school appeals team by December 23.
