Two vacancies for Trustees

Our trustee with accounting skills is retiring from the Board after 11 years. Fortune College (part of the Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy) is therefore looking for a new trustee with accounting skills to join the Board of Trustees.


Additionally, we are looking to expand the educational side of our Board of Trustees so are looking for a trustee with a strong background in education, ideally from the Further Education sector and with knowledge of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.


The role involves 3 trustee meetings a year and approximately 4 sub-committee meetings. Meetings are either held in person at Avon Tyrrell, Bransgore Christchurch BH23 8EE or via MS Teams. The role is unpaid, but expenses can be reclaimed.


Fortune College is an independent specialist college for young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities aged 16-25. The college’s Further Education Through Horsemastership (FETH) Course offers an educational residential/day programme, working with horses, that prepares young people with learning disabilities to live as independently as possible and participate in their local community. The college provides the opportunity to achieve accredited qualifications, develop communication skills, independent living skills, self-confidence, and skills for working life.


If you are interested, please apply with a copy of your CV to the Chair of the Trustees
