Want to make a difference in your community, and develop your own professional skills? By volunteering as a governor or trustee, you can do both. Governors and trustees are volunteers who play an important role in leading our schools. They set the strategic vision and direction, approve the budget and hold the senior leadership team to account. By becoming a school governor you’ll be joining the biggest volunteer group in the country – more than 300,000 people like you are already serving governors and trustees.

Why should you become a school governor?
•Make a positive impact on young people’s lives and contribute to the issues that you feel passionately about.
•Develop new skills, such as board-level leadership, strategic planning, chairing, financial planning, and team working, that are valued by employers and can help your own career development.
•Use your skills and expertise to contribute to making our schools more effective. As a bonus, a governance role looks great on your CV.
