|Company||The Inns of Court College of Advocacy|
The ICCA delivers high quality and innovative professional education and training to Bar students and members of the Bar. It is the educational arm of the Council of the Inns of Court. We are seeking to fill a vital position on our Board of Governors, and are looking for an individual with expertise in the delivery of vocational or professional education and training, and who will provide strategic insight and leadership.
The Lay Governor (Professional Education & Training) will advise the Governors on current trends and best practice as employed in other sectors. To be considered ‘lay’, applicants must have never been authorised to conduct reserved legal activity (such as barristers or solicitors).
The organisation has three key areas of focus:
To achieve its objectives, the ICCA engages with barristers, the Judiciary and other representatives from the profession. The ICCA is comprised of experienced barristers and academics, together with a professional operations team, based in central London. The work of the College is directed and overseen by an appointed Board of Governors comprising a Chair, Vice-Chairs, representatives from the Inns of Court, a legal academic, a Judicial Governor, and two Lay Governors – one with a background in finance and operations, and the other with expertise in professional education and training. The previous appointee having completed their term of office, the Governors now wish to appoint a new Lay 2 Governor (Professional Education & Training) to join them and provide informed advice, support and constructive challenge to the ICCA in its work.
The Governors have established a number of sub-committees to oversee the running of the ICCA Bar Course. One of the sub-committees is the Examinations Board, which has academic oversight of ICCA Bar Course examinations, including the ratification of marks and classifications, and the sensitive consideration of mitigating circumstances and appeals presented by students. The Governors wish the person appointed as the Lay Governor (Professional Education & Training) to also act as Chair of the Examinations Board, which has seven hybrid meetings a year.
The Lay Governor (Postgraduate Education & Training) will act as a source of expertise in the delivery of vocational and professional education and training. They will serve on both the Board of Governors and its Examinations Board, acting as a conduit between the two and so ensuring that the ICCA’s aims and priorities are effectively and appropriately progressed.
You will have extensive experience and an in-depth understanding of:
The Lay Governor would be required to attend approximately 4-7 meetings a year and Exam Boards 7 times a year. Meetings are approximately 1.5 hours long and meetings generally take place from 5.00pm-6.30pm. These are hybrid so could be joined in person in central London or via Zoom (it is likely that some of these should be in person).
