We know that to give young people the best possible start in life they need access to a good education and governors have a key role to play in supporting and improving our schools.
Being a school governor means having a direct involvement in supporting schools and giving children the best possible chance to fulfil their potential. It’s a thoroughly worthwhile experience – and schools across our city are recruiting now.
Bristol Learning City, a partnership of over 70 local organisations, has launched a new campaign alongside Business West and the free, online Inspiring Governance service to recruit more school governors.
We want local businesses and employees to consider the benefits of volunteering as a way to give back to local communities and support the city’s schools. The ‘Be a Governor’ campaign highlights what new recruits are set to gain – including the opportunity to learn new skills, build networks and, if employed, boost their company’s reputation in the community.
One of Bristol’s strengths is its diverse population, so we’re looking to recruit new governors from all walks of life to reflect this. By helping to support our schools, individuals can play a role in improving life chances for all students.
