The Faculty of Astrological Studies is run by its Council, a small team of people truly devoted to the Faculty and working closely together to ensure that the Faculty runs smoothly in pursuit of its teaching objectives and in compliance with its Articles of Association.
We believe that an astrological school benefits from being run by a team of people. This ensures that the astrology we teach, and the standards we aim for, represent more than just one person's point of view. Our course material, for instance, contains contributions from a variety of our tutors and benefits from the input of Council's dedicated team, most of whom also hold further education qualifications in a range of relevant subjects, possessing between them a broad range of experience.
All Council roles are voluntary, unpaid positions – the Faculty is a not-for-profit organisation and all the money you pay in fees goes towards your tuition, course material and other services of direct benefit to our students.
Council Members or, more officially, Councillors, have to be Faculty Diploma holders. Apart from being voting officers, all Council Members have to be tutors and examiners so that their involvement with the educational side of the Faculty is maximised.
As of the Annual General Meeting in November 2018, the Council is comprised of the following members:
- Cat Cox, President
- Frances Clynes, Vice-President
- Penny de Abreu, Council Secretary
- Lindsay Gladstone
- Deborah Morgan
- Glòria Roca
- Liz Rooke
- Dragana Van de mortel-Ilić
As well as attending three Council meetings per year, all Councillors participate regularly in the Faculty's Education Committee to focus on educational matters. This ensures that our courses and exams are kept fresh and up-to-date, giving our students the very best astrological education. The Education Committee actively takes student feedback into account in the development of the courses, so that they can continually be improved.
