Govan Law Centre’s Education Law Unit aims to uphold, protect and enforce the rights of pupils and parents across Scotland by providing expert legal, and non-legal representation at tribunals and courts; provide advice and information about education law; and work with stakeholders to influence legislation and policy with regard to education and the law.
We seek two parents to be part of our Project Delivery Sub-Committee to provide strategic guidance and manage the performance at the Education Law Unit alongside our current Committee members. The Committee’s functions are as follows:
Provide guidance and direction, make decisions to steer the progress and delivery of the project;
Monitor and approve the progress of the project against the aims of the project;
Approve project documentation provided by the project manager;
Provides timely and appropriate visibility of project progress and key risks and issues to the Board of Trustees as required; and
Proactively managed project risks.
The meetings take place on a quarterly basis and there is no payment to attend such meetings, although reasonable travel expenses can be met.
