Volunteers are needed across Cheshire East to serve as School Governors and support local schools.

School Governors help schools to set their strategic direction and ensure children and young people have the opportunity to reach their potential.

As a school governor you will gain Board-level experience, develop your skills and broaden your network. It's a fantastic professional development opportunity as well as having a real impact on your community.

Governors for Schools is an educational charity which aims to improve school standards. We believe the key to this is effective school governance so we recruit and support a talented network of volunteers.

Schools register their vacancies with us and tell us what skills they need on their Governing Boards. If you have skills in any of the following areas, we would love to hear from you:

Finance

HR

ICT

Law

Education

Fundraising

Marketing

Health and Safety

Premises

Procurement

Leadership

Strategy

Being a school governor is a volunteer role and you are asked to attend approximately six meetings a year, spend time reading papers to prepare for the meetings and to visit the school at least a couple of times a year. There may be additional requirements which we can asses when matching you with a school
