Expert Panels

The Foundation is a sector-owned body that engages with the sector in deciding priorities and programmes of work. A key means of achieving this is through the work of thematic Expert Panels, which reflect key areas of Foundation business. The Expert Panels work alongside the Foundation’s Executive team and report to the Foundation Board through its Audit & Performance Committee.

The Panels:

  • advise on the core activity of the Foundation, sharing expertise, sector need, desire and perspective to shape our offer
  • assist in shaping and monitoring the evaluation of relevant areas of work, including advising on key performance indicators and impact measures
  • receive and endorse high level specification for future programmes

A pool of around 40 Panel members is maintained, via an open and public recruitment process, including practitioners, leaders, employers and learners from all parts of the sector.
