Trustee Duties and Commitments

The College of Paramedics’ core aims are to enhance healthcare and save lives through the advancement of education, training and continuing professional development within the paramedic profession. These strategic aims are overseen by the Board of Trustees (the Board) of the College of Paramedics (the College).

The purpose of the Board of Trustees is to set the strategic direction for the College, oversee College business, and provide governance structures and safeguards. It achieves this through its own actions and through delegation of appropriate actions to established committees of the Board.

The Board is made up of the Representative Trustees and Trustee Officials. It is supported by committees of the Board, for example the Trustee Officials Committee. The Executive Team and members of College staff provide input to Board meetings as determined by the Chief Executive.

The Trustee Duties and Commitments document aims to provide clear information and guidance on the duties and commitments of being a Trustee of the College.
