Education charity ‘SGOSS – Governors for Schools’ has launched a new campaign which highlights the personal benefits of volunteering in a quest to help fill 30,000 school governor vacancies across England.
School governors are the largest group of volunteers in education. They support and challenge the Head Teacher, set the strategic direction for the school and monitor and evaluate progress. As members of the school’s governing body, governors have the opportunity to significantly develop their skills and competencies.
To find out more information about the campaign, or to volunteer as a school governor visit http://www.becomeagovernor.
SGOSS have also launched a new short for the campaign, “We’re the people…” which follows four volunteers in their workplace and shows how they use their skills to support children, education and schools.
If you would like to win a Kindle Fire, please tell us below who your ideal school governor would be and why. then log onto Rafflecopter and get entering…
Please note this competition is run across my two sites Mum’s the Boss and Motivating Mum and it closes on February 22nd.
