Could You 'Be A Governor'? Apply today to join Bristol school boards
With business experinece and life skills you could be a school governor!
Bristol 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 stand to 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.
Take the first step today - could this be your New Year's venture?
We’ve created a new, online 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?’
- This intro delivers readers to Bristol’s apply-online portal – Be a Governor in Bristol
- Read the Mayor’s blog on the subject.
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.
If you've read the introduction, Bristol Learning City encourages all people with business, professional and life skills to apply online today at Be a Governor in Bristol. The matching process can get underway this week - you could be on a school board of governors for 2018!
