Christopher Acheson - Trust Governor
I am a Trust governor serving on the Resources committee and as the Maths and Health & Safety link governor. In the UK, almost 1 million 16-25 year olds are not in education, employment, or training (NEET). There is a clear need to secure a brighter future for the UK’s youth through giving back to the communities we live in. Over the past few years, I have been involved with mentoring at-risk youth and university students nearing graduation to support the development of their CVs, interview skills, and personal confidence. This experience has drawn my attention to the need to support our local communities and help give as many young people as possible a strong start to their working lives. To support this cause, about which I am passionate, I have chosen to be a governor at Tidemill. My finance knowledge base as a Chartered Accountant through the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS), experience in audit, and current role as a consultant assists with the strategic discussions, challenges, and decisions required as part of the governing body meetings.
