Description

Do you want to support the education of local pupils whilst learning and developing professional skills?

Then you should consider volunteering as a School Governor. Governors volunteer roughly 7 hours a month, usually outside office hours, and work with head teachers to make schools as efficient and effective as possible.

No previous experience is required, and free training is provided by your local authority.

Governors meet once a month to set the school's vision, manage its budget, and monitor and evaluate a school's progress towards targets.

You can develop skills such as interviewing, appraisal, budget control, project management and can hone a range of other business skills in a new environment.

The placement length is a minimum of a year, so you should only consider this opportunity if you can commit for at least a year. Staff and mature students particularly welcome!

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity
  • Planning/Organising
  • Leadership/Management
  • Analytical/Research
  • Communication Skills
  • Marketing

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

Your Local Authority (usually City or County Council) provides free training for all governor volunteers.
