The Department for Schools and Colleges are looking to recruit new panel members for School Admission Appeals.  The appeals generally take place during the months of May, June and July.  However, there are popular schools across the diocese who also have a few in-year appeals during the academic year.

As a panel member you will receive regular training and can claim for travel expenses.   During the bulk appeals (May – July) or when there are several appeals to be heard in one day, then lunch and refreshments are also provided.

Every appeal panel consists of both lay members and education members.  Our panels are made up of three members, with one member also chairing the hearings.

If you would like to find out more about how appeals are conducted and what is involved, or to book onto the training please contact Jenny Fitzgerald on 0117 9025599 or by e-mail to: [email protected]  The training session will be at Alexander House, 160 Pennywell Road, Bristol, BS5 0TX on Monday, 23 March from 10:00 until 12:30.
