Committee

Volunteer Leadership

 

English 31 is lead by an all-volunteer Committee, consisting of 5-9 members, who are then supported by a salaried Head of the British Section to manage the association’s teaching.  The Committee’s purpose is to provide appropriate oversight of the association’s operations, to give strategic decisions in line with membership’s directions, and to ensure a proper and transparent governance of the association for the benefit of all members.  Our ongoing challenge is to consistently deliver high quality education integrated within French schools and to maintain accredited status by fulfilling the criteria for International Sections and for Cambridge International Examinations board.

 

Three committee members – the President, Secretary and Treasurer – form the board, or officers, of the association and are the legal representatives of the association; they work with the French administration, host schools, association employees, outside service providers and members. The other committee members are delegated with specific responsibilities to ensure that English 31 is able to deliver the highest educational standards through the British Section.

 

The Committee delegates the day-to-day management of teaching matters to the Head of the British Section as the director of educational programmes, from Maternelle/Primaire to the end of Lycée.
