Would you make a good school governor
Here in Peterborough, as part of our school governor recruitment
initiative, we are keen to help schools to attract volunteers from
the community to become school governors. We are looking for people
who can bring energy, ideas and experience of life to support
school staff in the organisation and management of schools.
Governors don't need formal qualifications or particular skills.
Everyone has something to offer. School governorship provides
opportunities to develop new skills and practice existing ones.
Governors do need to be able to dedicate some
time to their role, typically two evening governing body meetings a
term, as well as being prepared to serve on at least one of the
governing body's committees. The local authority provides a
training programme to help and support governors in learning about
their role and responsibilities. If you would like to find out more
please email the Governor services
team or telephone (01733) 863642 and we will provide you
with more information about what is involved.
