Vacancy – School Governor

We have a vacancy for a School Governor here at Clifton Community School.

Closing Date: 21st MAY 2021 (NOON)

About the role

You can make a positive difference to the lives of young people in your local community by becoming a School Governor and helping to drive school improvement. 

A school’s Local Governing Body plays an important role in a school’s success, working together as a team to support and challenge senior school leadership and guiding their strategic direction. School Governors need to reflect and represent the local communities they serve. They also need people with a good blend of knowledge, skills and experience. 

So, whatever your age or background and wherever you are in your career, you will have a lot to contribute and gain from being a School Governor. 

It’s an opportunity for personal development, which could include:

  • Strategic leadership
  • Project management
  • Influencing and negotiation
  • Budget control
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Problem solving


You will need to attend half-termly meetings, typically outside of school hours, and do the necessary preparatory reading. The time commitment is the region of 2-3 hours a month depending on the school or additional responsibilities you take on. 

The Trust has an extensive programme of support with regular, bespoke training sessions, Governor network meetings, extensive Governor online resources, an annual WPT Governor’s conference and additional training opportunities through Learners First Partnership – all free of charge.
