Who we are
The Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes (TASO) is an affiliate What Works Centre, and part of the UK Government’s What Works Movement. Our vision is to eliminate equality gaps in higher education (HE). Our mission is to improve lives through evidence-informed practice.
Our work focuses on the generation, synthesis and dissemination of high-quality evidence about effective practice in widening participation and student outcomes.
We are looking for people who are values-led with wide-ranging experiences across different sectors who can bring a different way of thinking. Above all, our Trustees will be passionate about what TASO is striving to achieve.
We are looking for a number of new people with the following professional experience to join our Board:
- Finance and accountancy
- PR and communications
- Charity and/or company law
- Data protection
We expect the time commitment to be a day a month. This will include quarterly meetings, occasional considered input into working groups and attendance at sector events.
We are looking for one, or more, of our new trustees to sit on our finance and risk committee.
You do not necessarily need to have any experience of being a trustee; TASO will give you a full induction and support to help you develop into this role.
A priority for us is to ensure we represent the people we are seeking to support and so we are looking to appoint a student representative – including someone who has not had a traditional route to higher education.
We are committed to diversifying the Board and welcome applications from people whose identities are currently under-represented on the Board: LGBTQ+ people, disabled people and Black, Asian and minority ethnic people.
