Maintenance to online systems

Become a school governor

School governors come from all areas of society, ethnic backgrounds and ages. They are volunteers who play an important part in education in the city.

You don't need to be a parent or have any formal qualifications to become a governor, but you must be willing to listen and to contribute to a team, have time to commit to a local school and want to improve education in the city.

It is a fantastic opportunity to give something back to the local community as well as learning new skills.

Meetings are usually in the early evening, last a couple of hours and take place roughly twice a term. Free training is provided for governors.
