SkillsAnyone aged over 18 can be a governor and you do not need to be a parent. There is no requirement for you to have an understanding of the education system, just the necessary skills, character and time to contribute. There is plenty of training available to help you learn about education. Above all we are currently looking for individuals who have a passion for improving the life chances of students. It would be advantageous if you had professional knowledge in any of these areas but it is not essential; education, finance, human resources, legal, data analysis, marketing and public relations, safeguarding, risk management, property and estates management and organisational change. It is also important that you have time to commit to the role. School governors typically attend 4 meetings per year, as well as making 2 school visits and having background reading and training.
