Have you ever considered being a college governor?
The following is a quote from www.governet.co.uk – the information site for college governors.
School governors are people from the school’s community who wish to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They must be aged 18 or over at the date of their election or appointment. There is no upper age limit. Governors are the largest volunteer force in the county and have an important part to play in raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluating school performance.
If you really want to make a difference to your child’s education and provide an essential service to your local community then consider spending around 6 hours per school term serving as a governor.
I’m interested – now what do I do?
