With business skills you could be a school governor.
Learning City has launched a recruitment campaign inviting the Bristol business community to help fill around 200 school governor and trustee vacancies by September 2018.
Schools can benefit from the many skills businesses and their employees can bring to governing bodies. The benefits to businesses and their employees come from the learning that board members bring back to the workplace: increased confidence; decision-making and communication abilities, plus leadership and management skills.
We’ve created a new, online matching process that matches potential governors to Bristol schools, as well as an introduction for employees, explaining the easy application process and what to expect of the role:
- An interactive PDF, ‘Could you be a governor?’
- Sign up today at Bristol’s apply-online portal – Be a Governor in Bristol
The message from schools and Mayor Marvin Rees is that good governance can raise outcomes and life chances for young people across the city. Employers can add more Bristol business skills to the good work being done on school boards today.
