EPEA Vacant Positions
Klasbak is de Vlaamse branch van de European Prison Education Association (EPEA). Het bestuur is op zoek naar EPEA-leden die aan de slag willen gaan in het 'Steering Committee'. Bij deze, de oproep!
The EPEA Steering Committee is presently looking for EPEA members to be nominated for the positions of:
- Deputy Chair, to assist the current chair, Annet Bakker, in her last year of office and as from July 2021 start a 3 year term of office as Chair of EPEA.
And a person that can replace:
- The current Southern Representative, Patrizia Corasaniti, who has asked to leave office.
- The current Western Representative, Ruth McFarlane, who has asked to leave office (to be the Project Officer instead )
Nominees for all posts should be EPEA-members.
The Chair has a key role in the our organisation. The position requires a person more than on average, dedicated to prison education and willing to spend a considerable amount of time to EPEA matters. We are looking for serious candidates who are experienced in prison education, able and willing to spend a considerable amount of time into managing the EPEA. The (deputy) Chair will start office on the 1st October 2020 and run alongside and assist the current Chair in the daily tasks. As from 1st July 2021 he or she will replace the current Chair for a 3 year term of office as Chair.
(officially the term of office start at 1st July. Due to COVID-1, which delayed these nomination-procedures, there is less than a full year for the transfer. Prolongation of the term of support for the deputy chair up to the full year is possible, the official handover will be at 1st July)
The Regional Representative is our first contact for all queries within the region. It should be a member from the region who has an aspiration to be more actively involved in EPEA activities and who also wants to promote EPEA in the region, build upon existing connections to the professional prison education world and initiate new partnerships.

All Steering Committee posts are voluntary jobs, so payment is only done in enriched experience and the building of new friendships. But they are equally good opportunities to get a better insight into the EPEA, to increase one’s personal development as a professional, to widen one’s professional scope to a European one, to get the possibility to travel internationally, to attend the EPEA Conferences and to participate in EPEA Steering Committee meetings.
If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
We are looking forward to your nominations, to complete our team.
On behalf of the EPEA Steering Committee,
