Dorset Council is looking to attract some additional school governors as there are a number of vacancies in the area.
School governors don’t need to be education experts or have formal qualifications. They just need a passion for improving children’s knowledge and skills, and making a positive contribution to their learning.
They might be parents of children at their local school, or from the local community and businesses, bringing a range of creative ideas and experience.
Cllr Byron Quayle, Dorset Council Cabinet lead member for Education, said: “As a governor, you will be a member of a team supporting children and young people in your community and helping them meet their full potential.
“You will be involved at board level to set the strategic direction for the school, and make a difference to the education of the students. You’ll be part of an accountable body responsible for key decisions.
“As well as the satisfaction of helping to improve the lives of young people, you’ll be building new relationships and networks in your local area; you’ll get the chance to develop professional skills that could also benefit your employment, job prospects or business.
“Applications are welcomed from people of all ages and backgrounds and we will work hard to ensure that no individual will be disadvantaged.”
If you are interested in becoming a governor, you can register a general interest or find out more about being a governor by contacting the Governor Services team at Dorset Council by email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01305 224156.
