Pilot programme of training, development and support for under-represented groups in public appointments

The Welsh Government believes that public bodies should have board members who reflect Welsh society – people from all walks of life – to help them understand people’s needs and make better decisions. Boards should, as far as possible, be representative of the communities they serve.

The Welsh Government and the NHS Centre for Equality and Human Rights have established a pilot programme of training, development and support to help increase diversity in public appointments. The aim of the programme is to increase people’s chances of a successful application to a Public Body as an Independent Board Member and/or a potential Independent Interview Panel Member.

This initial pilot is available for up to 18 people from under-represented groups across Wales The pilot programme will include an opportunity to observe NHS board meetings and shadow board members.

If you have any questions about the pilot programme, please contact

Interested individuals are required to submit an expression of interest by Monday 8 December 2014.
