Appeal for new school governors

Nottinghamshire County Council is appealing for Ashfield people to become school governors.

There are 83 governor vacancies, 13.7% of the positions, vacant across Ashfield with residents wanted in parent, community, foundation and local authority positions. There are 26 parent vacancies, 14.1% of the total number of 159 posts, 21 community vacancies (15.1%) and six foundation governor vacancies (11.5%). Community governors are recruited from local people or businesses with the skills required by the specific school and foundation governors are appointed by the diocese, church or a voluntary trust.

A governor’s role includes monitoring budgets, appointing senior staff, including headteachers, and making decisions on the future of the school. No formal qualifications are necessary to be a governor and anyone who is aged 18 or over and has six to eight hours per term to spare is invited to apply.

To find out more about vacancies in Nottinghamshire schools, telephone Jane Mansell on 0115 8546054 or email [email protected]
