No prior board membership experience is required. Training and mentoring is available and an induction programme is provided to new members.

In addition, the Board is especially keen to hear from a diverse range of people who are currently under represented on the Boards of public bodies across Scotland.

A spokesperson for the college said: “We are looking for individuals who share our commitment to providing the best possible learning experience, and who can represent the interests of the Borders economy and communities.
