Recruiting a new Chair of the Board of Trustees for City & Guilds of London Art School

The Board of the City & Guilds of London Art School are seeking to appoint a new Chair following the retirement of Robin Holland-Martin, who chaired the Art School over a significant period in its development with great success. Laurence Benson is currently interim Chair during the recruitment and appointment period before returning to his previous position as Deputy Chair.

The Art School is specialist offering undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Conservation, Fine Art and Historic Carving as well as a Foundation Diploma in Art & Design. It has a reputation for a very high standard of student work, quality of teaching, generous studio spaces and a high level of student satisfaction. The Art School, while small with circa 240 students, makes a significant contribution to culture and heritage through championing endangered subjects and a focus on the dialogues between the eye, hand, material and intellect.

The Art School is in a crucial phase in its history with new course initiatives and major developments planned for its historic site over the next five years. Our specialist offer is soon to be expanded with a new BA (Hons) Conservation: Books & Paper, following the closure of MA Conservation at Camberwell College of Arts, UAL, and a development project to support this and other projects is ongoing.

The Art School is a charitable company, governed by a Board of Trustees.
