Our Team

Our Trustees

The Izzi Trust is the trading name of the Centurus Colleges Trust.  We have a board of 4 trustees, who meet quarterly to review the activities, accounts, strategy and direction of the trust, and to provide their experience and input into the trust’s achievements and goals.

The trustees of the Izzi Trust have varied and distinguished backgrounds in a number of different fields.  However, they have one thing in common: they care deeply and profoundly for their country, and for the future of the children living in it.

Below are short summaries of the backgrounds, educations and interests of our four trustees.
