Derbyshire County Council is currently launching a recruitment campaign to encourage people to apply to become governors in their local school or community. There are over 400 schools in the county, ranging from nurseries and pre-schools to sixth form colleges. Derbyshire has a range of types of schools, including primary, secondary and special; faith schools; maintained schools and academies. There is also a variety of governance structures, with a mixture of governing boards, trustees, single schools and groups of schools or academies. So, lots of choice if you are interested in this role.
Schools are at the core of their communities and rely on the support of people like you, who have the skills, qualities and commitment to improve education for every child.
If you would like to offer your services as a school governor, all you need is commitment, enthusiasm and the ability to work as part of a team. In return, the Governor Support Service can match your skills to those needed by individual schools across the county. They are also on hand to provide support, guidance and help with signposting, as well as providing a comprehensive programme of training.
