APEAS - Lay Directors

The Architects’ Professional Examination Authority in Scotland (APEAS) is prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to offer the Part 3 Examination in Scotland i.e., the final qualifying examination for registration as an Architect. APEAS therefore plays a vital role in the development of aspiring Architects and of the profession as a whole.

APEAS is seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced individuals from all sectors of the community who are interested in serving on its Board of Directors as a lay Director i.e., as a Director who is not an Architect - the Board includes Architects from across the architectural community who are committed to making the APEAS Part 3 Examination as effective as it possibly can be.

Applications are particularly welcomed from individuals with experience in one or more of the following areas: assessment/quality assurance in another  professional/academic context; audit/finance; IT; marketing; law/development and the application of appeals/ complaints/disciplinary procedures.

Successful applicants will have:
• An understanding of, and a keen interest in, professional standards;
• Board level/governance experience; and
• a strong commitment to the objectives and values of APEAS.

These roles are not remunerated, but all reasonable costs associated with their effective discharge will be met. The Board normally meets 4 times a year (currently using Teams). APEAS is committed to equality and diversity and welcomes applications from underrepresented groups.

APEAS is a both a company limited by guarantee and a charity registered in Scotland.

The closing date for the receipt of applications is Monday, 9 August 2021
