Becoming a local governor

Some governors are elected by parents and staff, others are nominated by the local governing committee for approval by the trust board or co-opted directly by the local governing committee. The role is voluntary although individuals are entitled to claim expenses in line with the trust's Director and Local Governor Expenses Policy.
 
#JoinThe250k is a national campaign from Inspiring Governance aiming to attract people to volunteer as school governors or trustees. You can watch their film which features young people explaining the benefits of being a governor/trustee, challenging myths about who can govern and sharing how to get involved.
 
We currently have a vacancy for a local governor to be appointed by the Trust Board. If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Hannah Hales, Governance Support Adviser on 0191 2284094 in the first instance.
