Governors for Schools are currently undertaking a recruitment drive in Hillingdon to address a current need for new governors in the local area. They provide a free outstanding recruitment and placement service for skilled and committed people to be governors and trustees of schools and academies. They work on a skills-based matching service where they find candidates with the right skills and experience to meet the needs of schools, in order to help best equip schools make the decisions that are right for them. This ensures that the skills members of the community bring to the role have maximum impact for the schools where they are appointed as governors.
School governors have three core roles:
Setting the vision and strategic direction for the school
Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school
Ensuring financial probity and that the school is making the best use of its money
This is an exciting opportunity to improve the quality of education for local children. Members of the community will make a valuable contribution to the educational outcomes of local schools, while at the same time learning new skills, including contributing in a board context.
