Schools Advisory Board

The CEM Advisory Board was established in 2000 to allow stakeholders a role in CEM development. Board members are drawn from schools, colleges and other organisations that use CEM’s monitoring systems. Most members are chosen by election, with the remainder co-opted to help ensure that the Board represents a cross-section of stakeholders and we meet twice a year. These meetings are an opportunity for Board members to ask questions of CEM’s senior management, to help make sure the Centre is abreast of current educational issues, and to give advice about future developments.

The Advisory Board also sends a representative to sit on the CEM Oversight Group meetings held at Durham University, giving the Advisory Board a voice in the governance of the Centre.

The current membership of the CEM Advisory Board is listed below:
