Change young lives: Join Speech and Language UK's Education Committee

Do you have a passion for education and a heart for children facing challenges?

Speech and Language UK, a leading charity supporting the 1.9 million children with speech and language challenges, seeks dedicated volunteers for its Education Committee. This committee acts as the governing body for our two special schools.

Make a real difference:

  • Strategic impact: Contribute to shaping the educational future of children with complex speech and language challenges.
  • Direct influence: Provide guidance and support, acting as a critical friend, to ensure our schools deliver the highest quality education.
  • Flexible commitment: Meetings are held online, 5-6 times a year for 2 hours each, allowing you to volunteer around your schedule.

We value diversity:

We actively encourage applications from individuals from all backgrounds, particularly those, disabled, working class, LGBTQ+, or from the Midlands, North, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

We especially welcome those with personal or family experience of speech and language challenges.

Your skills matter:

Prior experience in education leadership (schools/multi-academy trusts) is a plus.

Knowledge of Health & Safety or Facilities Management is also valuable.

Most importantly, we seek your passion, fresh perspective, and willingness to learn.

Leave a lasting legacy:

Join a dedicated team shaping the lives of children with speech and language challenges.

Who are Speech and Language UK?   

For at least 1.9 million children in the UK, learning to talk and understand words feels like an impossible hurdle. We work to give every child the skills they need to face the future with confidence. We design innovative tools and training for thousands of nursery assistants and teachers to use in their classrooms. We give families the confidence and skills to help their children. And we put pressure on politicians to prioritise help for speech and language challenges. 


We demand a country in which every child with challenges in talking and understanding words has the skills they need to face the future with confidence. Together we can achieve it.
