Who can become a Governor?
There are no specific qualifications or requirements for the role - every governing board needs a balance and diversity of knowledge, skills and experience. You don't need to be a parent or to have a background in education.
To be eligible to volunteer, you need:
- the time to contribute (altogether, you can expect to spend 10-20 days each year on governance duties, with some meetings and visits taking place during the working day)
- to be aged 18 or over
- not to be disqualified under the relevant rules and procedures
