Find out how to become a Trustee of the EA

The English Association is the learned society for English, and a registered charity incorporated by Royal Charter. The Association's aim is to further the knowledge, understanding, and enjoyment of the English language and its literatures for all.

We want to strengthen and diversify our Board with the appointment of new Trustees. We're looking for people who can help the EA reach its four strategic objectives by 2023:

  • Secure the future of the discipline by promoting the value of the study of English
  • Take a proactive approach to shaping national and international debate
  • Enable teachers to deliver engaging and exciting learning at all stages of education
  • Ensure our resources and events are relevant to the needs of all members

We're particularly keen to hear from people with experience of:

  • Teaching English as a foreign/other language
  • Teaching English in maintained schools at Key Stages 3 and 4
  • Teaching English language/linguistics at Key Stage 5
  • Charity law/compliance
  • Fundraising
  • Continuing Professional Development/training
  • Supporting the A Level to university transition

If you share our belief in the power of English (reading, writing, learning, and teaching) to change lives, we would be delighted to hear from you.

We would like to achieve greater diversity within our boards and committees, and welcome applications from all members of the community, particularly from under-represented minorities.

Closing date: Midnight 31 July 2020
