The City of Cardiff Council is looking to appoint members of the public and teachers to its Independent Education Appeal Panel which adjudicates on appeals by parents against decisions made by the Local Education Authority. The appeals relate to both admissions to schools and exclusion from schools.

All community schools within the City of Cardiff are served by the Independent Education Appeal Panel.

Panels are made up of lay and non-lay members.

Lay members should have no previous teaching experience nor have been involved in the management of a school. However, experience as a School Governor or helping a school in a voluntary capacity would not exclude you from this category.

Non-Lay members would have experience in education, be acquainted with the educational conditions in the area of The City of Cardiff, or be a parent of a pupil registered at another school.

Education Appeal Panel members do not receive payment for sitting on the Panel although travel expenses are reimbursed and refreshments are provided.

Hearings take place between the hours of 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Appeal Panels sit all year round although the majority of appeals are heard between May and July.

Full training is provided for new Appeal Panel Members and a Clerk is always available to give legal and procedural advice.

If you are interested in becoming a Panel Member, please contact School Appeals on 029 2087 2474 for an application form or alternatively write to the address below.
