Black Mountains College is a new College based in the Brecon Beacons with ambitious plans for future expansion. 

BMC offers a new model of education, making it more relevant to students and to the rapidly changing world, empowering students to change the world, rather than be moulded by it. We offer vocational further education and are developing a unique new kind of undergraduate degree.

BMC is a registered charity operated as a company limited by guarantee. The board of directors of the company are also trustees of the charity. To help us grow we need experienced people to join our Board. We are particularly keen to recruit members with expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Experience of farming in Wales;
  • Senior experience in higher education teaching and management;
  • Further education;
  • Experience of raising finance for start-ups;
  • Ecology and conservation;
  • A Welsh Language speaker

Board meetings are held every quarter at the Talgarth HQ but remote access to meetings is acceptable.  The Board is responsible for setting the strategy and policies of BMC and guiding and supporting the Chief Executive and team. 

To find out more about joining the Board, please contact Ben Rawlence on or 07984816013
