If you’re looking to give back to your local community and gain unique experiences that will impress employers, a school governance role could be just what you’re looking for.
By becoming a governor, you can support the next generation whilst gaining valuable skills including budget oversight and strategic planning. Plus, you’ll be helping to diversify the governance landscape.
According to stats from the National Governance Association, only 6% of governors are aged under 40 and only 1% are aged under 30. This lack of young voices limits the range of experiences and perspectives on school’s boards.
To discover how your experiences as a young person could help address this gap and drive positive change in a school, sign up for the Governors for Schools online information session at 5:30pm on Wednesday 5 July.
Governors for Schools is a national charity committed to helping ensure excellent education for children in schools through effective governance. The webinar will cover the role of school governing boards, how the Governors for Schools free service works, and the training provided both before and after you are appointed as a school governor. The session will also feature insights from current young governors, who will happily answer your questions and concerns.
Sign up for the webinar on Wednesday 5 July and find out more on the Governors for Schools website.
If you have any questions about the session, please contact Shima Begum, Partnerships Coordinator at Governors for Schools at [email protected].
