Boardroom Apprentice Invites Applicants to #GetOnBoard
Theatre Royal Wakefield has become one of only 38 organisations across the UK who will host a Boardroom Apprentice.
The UK Boardroom Apprentice is a unique board learning, development and placement programme which enables those who would like to serve on a public or third sector board to learn and gain the experience that they need to take that step. It seeks to enable a wider diversity of individuals to play their part within boardrooms, allowing those without board experience to enhance their knowledge and understanding through in-depth learning and support.
0 StarsIt is a pleasure to be able to support the UK Boardroom Apprentice programme and we are looking forward to welcoming a Boardroom Apprentice to have a vital voice and role in our governance. We hope to play our part in attracting a wider diversity of individuals to play their part within boardrooms across the UK, bringing new insights and an important breadth of perspectives. We would invite anyone in the region who may be eligible, to apply for this fantastic opportunity.
Katie Town, Executive Director
Applications for the programme are open to people of all ages, from 16+, and all backgrounds and abilities. To be eligible for the programme, applicants must not have held a board position on a public-sector body or have gained experience on private, voluntary, community or social enterprise boards.
0 StarsBoardroom Apprentice was created to deliver diversity, create change, and realise aspirations. Our vision is simple – to bridge the gap between aspiration and reality. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to join a host board for a year to learn how they can bring fresh perspectives and diverse thinking to boardrooms across the UK. I would encourage anyone in the Wakefield area who is eligible and aspires to serve on a board in the public or third sector to apply.

This fab initiative will enable a wider diversity of individuals to play their part within boardrooms across the UK, bringing new insights and an important breadth of perspectives. It will also allow people who may not otherwise have had the opportunity to join a board, to do so and ultimately, make a difference to public life.
